United States District Judge Mark E. Fuller was arrested for misdemeanor spousal abuse. According to his wife, the abuse was violent. See here. The Eleventh Circuit stripped the judge of his caseload pending completion of an investigation. The judge will be paid despite the fact that he won’t be handling a caseload.  It is unlikely that the judge will be impeached even if he beat his wife. See here and here for additional newspaper coverage.

What, if anything, should the judge do if he is guilty of assaulting his wife?
