Judge Marcus Einfeld lies about speeding ticket

Australian Supreme Court Judge Marcus Einfeld was sentenced to 3 years prison for perverting the course of justice last year after lying about a AUD$77 speeding ticket.

This side of the Tasman, New Zealand Supreme Court Judge Bill Wilson claims a judicial conduct panel has no power to investigate him and he has formally applied to the High Court to back him up.

According to Wilson;s lawyer, tossing an appeal for a lawyer Wilson J was indebted to and then lying about it is not a serious offence.  YEAH, RIGHT.
