Recusal details
Alabama judges heard cases for 188
years before the first judge was recused
for bias.  It is Glenn Thompson's legacy
to have been that judge.
Judge Thompson gave a television interview when Moore
was freed.  Thompson said he was pleased with the
outcome and criticized his own jury that found Moore
guilty.  When asked about justice for Karen Tipton, he
said he hoped one day new technology might come along
that would allow proof of who killed Karen.
My only response to that is they already did, Judge.  It's
called DNA.
