The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday suspended one of its members over his participation in a state government pornographic email scandal that involved employees of the attorney general's office.
The Judicial Conduct Board was given a month to determine whether there is probable cause to file a misconduct charge against McCaffery, a Philadelphia Democrat elected to the seven-member bench in 2007.
The court's action followed disclosures last week by Chief Justice Ronald Castille, a Republican, that McCaffery had sent or received 234 emails with sexually explicit content or pornography from late 2008 to May 2012.
An internal review of how state prosecutors handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case turned up the email exchanges of pornographic images and videos.
Four former employees of the office — the secretary of environmental protection, a lawyer in that agency, a member of the state parole board and a county prosecutor — have left their government jobs as a result.
