As a strong supporter of Judge Day’s fight for the liberty of conscience, Governor Mike Huckabee has invited Judge Day to bring Huckabee viewers up to date. Judge Day appeared this past April on Huckabee a week before his trial was postponed and moved to Multnomah County. On October 23rd, the State of Oregon was forced to dismiss all charges against Judge Day when their case collapsed because they did not subpoena their only witness.
Meanwhile, the Oregon State Bar had previously opened two disciplinary cases against Judge Day. Since the dramatic collapse of the Oregon Department of Justice’s case against him, the Oregon State Bar has dropped one of its disciplinary cases. It seems they were premature in expecting Judge Day to be found guilty of some crime.
To bring this into context, the first case was based upon the conclusion by the Oregon Supreme Court that he had been less than forthright with the commission in his testimony (they based this on only half of the evidence and refused to let Judge Day present the remainder of the factual evidence). The second case was due to the criminal charges and was in anticipation of a guilty verdict or if he struck a plea deal. Since all the criminal charges were dismissed, there was no basis for the second Oregon State Bar complaint.
In an attempt to discipline Judge Day, the Oregon State Bar is still pursuing the first case. A response to the state bar is due in early December. Judge Day has publicly stated that he will fight the disciplinary charges and push this matter to a hearing. “Due process demands that they give me my day in court,” says Judge Day. “I want a full and fair opportunity to present the evidence that was excluded during the 2015 commission hearing.” Currently, no date has been set for a hearing before the Oregon State Bar.
