Frequently Asked Questions about the Don Siegelman Case

Question: Where is the Siegelman Judge today?

Well, he is no longer on the bench. Under threat of impeachment, Mark Fuller resigned effective Aug 1, 2015, for beating his wife in an Atlanta hotel. The assault was captured on audio when his wife phoned 911 for help. It can be heard here.

Question: Was the Judge in the Siegelman case fair and open-minded?

No. When Mark Fuller assumed his position as Federal Judge, Governor Siegelman's office found that Fuller had misappropriated over $300,000 in Retirement funds in his previous post as District Attorney. Although the audit was routine and no charges were filed, Fuller was professionally embarrassed. He blamed Siegelman. The trial provided the perfect opportunity for payback. Fuller had also provided significant support to Gov. Siegelman’s political opponents during the previous race for Governor of Alabama. Despite these glaring conflicts of interest, Fuller refused to recuse himself from the trial. Read More

Question: Did the judge also have private business interests that might cloud his judgement?

Yes. In fact, Judge Fuller was one of the wealthier men in the courtroom. For example, at the time of the trial, Mark Fuller was one of the primary stockholders in Doss Aviation. Doss Aviation's main customer was the U.S. Air Force and the FBI, both active in the prosecution of Siegelman. Read More

Question: Which contract awarded to Doss Aviation was its largest ever? When was it awarded?

Question: Can Judge Fuller be impeached?

That is yet to be seen. According to the NYT (read more)"A high-level committee of federal judges told Congress this month that lawmakers had reason to consider impeaching Mark E. Fuller. . . " But distractors claim that it is unconstitutional to impeach a judge who has left the bench. Senator Grassley (R) surmises that “The fact remains that the current practice of self-regulation of judges with respect to ethics and the judicial code of conduct has time and again proven inadequate.”
