In re Peebles set for argument on January 3, 2013

The Missouri Supreme Court has set In re Peebles for oral argument at 9:30 AM on January 3.

This is the rare case where the Court is asked to review judicial discipline, namely the removal of a judge from the bench for inter alia allowing her clerk to operate without immediate supervision, for removing a motion to dismiss from the Court's file and destroying that motion, and for trying to cover up what had happened to that motion.
