Supreme Court brawl over pay freeze?
Hardesty said the vote had to be unanimous otherwise he would not proceed. Two justices voted against the voluntary pay freeze idea, which is fine. But what allegedly happened next is worrisome. According to my source, one of the justices became so enraged that he verbally assaulted (and darn near physically threatened) Hardesty for daring to tinker with his pay increase.
The outburst stunned all.
That's the story I'm hearing. I'm not going to say my source is dead-on impeccable on this, but I will say I believe my source to be reliable enough to pass the story along. If anyone has more on this, I'm listening because it sounds like one of our Supreme Court justices is one taco short of a combination plate and on the verge of an emotional breakdown.
