Our Moonlighting Supreme Court Judge

Associate Justice of the NC Supreme Court Edward Thomas Brady, the man who wrote the recent opinion allowing a convicted felon the right to own firearms, is himself a firearms dealer.


No really. Scharrison on BlueNC has done the digging.

On the face of it Brady violated Canon 3.C. of the NC Code of Judicial Conduct by failing to disqualify himself from the case because he "has a financial interest in the subject matter in controversy."

There's an indication (here, scroll to bottom) that Brady is not planning to run for reelection in 2010 when his current term expires, but 2010 hardly seems soon enough to get His Honor off the bench.
