The justice has a blatant conflict of interest: He owes money to a firm that got his vote in this and other cases. He should have agreed not to sit on any case where the law firm is involved until he pays what he owes.
His tawdry defense is that he agreed to pay the firm if he won the case where it represented him, and if the state paid his bill, so the free counsel was not a gift. Evading payment unless he won is unjustifiable.

There’s more. Go read and share.
