This seems like a good idea to me. Times-Picayune Updates:
A New Orleans judge widely criticized for granting thousands of free and reduced bail bonds to felons accused of violent crimes has been sidelined by the Louisiana Supreme Court on recommendation of its judicial disciplinary panel.

In an order issued Wednesday, the high court barred Criminal District Judge Charles Elloie from exercising 'any judicial function' pending the outcome of a continuing investigation of his conduct by the Judiciary Commission and the court.

In its recommendation, the commission said it has reason to believe that Elloie has violated the law and rules of judicial conduct and that he will continue doing so, threatening the administration of justice and the public, unless he is suspended from office. "
