Alabama Federal Judge Charged With Striking His Wife Faces Pressure to Resign

U.S. District Judge Mark E. Fuller

The public’s zero tolerance for NFL football players involved in physical abuse seems to have spilled over into the judiciary where U.S. District Judge Mark E. Fuller of Alabama was charged with striking his wife in a luxury hotel in Atlanta last month.

The New York Times reports that the judge is facing pressure to resign from a job that is a life-time appointment. He was appointed by President George W. Bush, and has often been the target of criticism from Democrats.

But the Times reports that pressure has come from both Republican and Democratic politicians for Fuller to step down .

The Times writes:

Representative Terri Sewell, the sole Democrat representing Alabama in Congress, drew a direct connection between Judge Fuller’s future and the current storm over domestic violence in the N.F.L. “If an N.F.L. player can lose his job because of domestic violence,” she said in a statement, “then a federal judge should definitely not be allowed to keep his lifetime appointment to the federal bench.”
