State High Court To Decide Fate Of Judge

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial  Court is deciding if former Belchertown District Court Chief Justice  Thomas Estes should be indefinitely suspended.  

A state commission made  that recommendation after Estes previously admitted to having sex with a  court employee in the courtroom.  

A hearing was held in Boston on  Tuesday.  

Under state law, only the legislature and Governor Charlie  Baker have the power to remove Estes.

The Governor has indicated that he would support the removal of the judge.
