Arkansas Supreme Court Justice with questionable ethics goes off in a zoom hearing about suit coats

On February 2, 2023, The Arkansas Supreme Court at the last minute, due to icy road conditions, held a hearing over Zoom instead of in-person.

The hearing was an appeal filed by attorney and law professor Robert Steinbuch for his client, attorney Chris Corbett. 

The appeal concerns a state law that bans firearms from courthouses, except for bailiffs and other “officers of the court." Steinbuch argues that definition includes attorneys who are "officers of the court" under state law.

About twenty minutes after the hearing began, Justice Hudson pulled out her Karen Card and scolded Steinbuch and Corbit for not having a coat on and put the hearing on hold until the were "properly attired".  

Hudson made a snippy comment that since Steinbuch had mentioned at the start of the hearing he had students watching, she said "we need to take a highlighter to a couple of large missteps you have taken procedurally with the court this morning".

We could not find any written requirements that attorney's and their clients had to be dressed in a suit to appear before the Arkansas Supreme Court. 

Several times during the hearing Hudson appeared to be spitting into a cup. 

Was she chewing tobacco or dipping snuff?

Hudson has a history of questionable ethical behavior.

Here are a couple of examples we can highlight.

Hudson took at least two vacations, one on 2011 and another in 2012 that were gifted to her and her ex-husband by an attorney.

Those vacations cost around $62,000.00 and were highly questionable for her to accept.


And there was this little snafu for her as well.

When married to that now ex-husband, the FBI had them under investigation.

Hudson and her ex have ties to convicted felon and corrupt politician Jeremy Hutchinson.

Hudson has no problems accepting gifts that state law prohibit but gets her panties in a wad when folks have to scramble to get ready for a Zoom hearing in their own home and are not wearing a suit coat.

If that was really an issue, Justice Hudson could and should have addressed that at the start of the hearing. 

If you watch the full hearing, there is a question Justice Hudson posed to Professor Steinbuch. Steinbuch responded saying " a better question would be..." and that is what set her off and precipitated her later outburst.

We wonder what would have happened if Steinbuch and Corbit would have been sitting at their tables in their homes wearing those shirts and ties while wearing no pants and that was observable when they stood up to go get jackets?

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
