In what appears to be more fallout from the federal probe into the judiciary of the Luzerne County court system, Donna Toole, wife of Luzerne County Judge Michael T. Toole has resigned from her job as a law clerk for state Superior Court Judge Correale F. Stevens. Dave Janoski writes about this latest episode in today's Citizen's Voice.
“The reason she gave was with all the coverage about her husband — she knows the Superior Court is not involved in any way — she was concerned with appearances,” Stevens said. ”She said she just didn’t want the court questioned.”
Donna Toole, who is an attorney, declined comment. Her husband could not be reached for comment.
As always the disclaimer that neither has been charged with any offenses in connection with the ongoing investigation.
