Massachusetts's top court weighed on Tuesday whether it should suspend a judge who admitted to engaging in repeated sexual encounters including in his courthouse with a social worker whose lawyer contended he abused the power he had over her. The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court considered whether it should take the rare step of indefinitely suspending Judge Thomas Estes without pay, clearing the way for state lawmakers to potentially remove him from office. The case has evoked the #MeToo movement, which has prompted women to share experiences of sexual abuse and harassment and exposed men accused of misconduct in fields ranging everywhere from entertainment to politics and business.
