Justice Mustapha Habib Logoh, one of the High Court judges implicated in the judicial corruption scandal in 2015, has sued the Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood for contempt.
Justice Logoh says it was wrong for the chief justice to have brought impeachment proceedings against him when the case is still pending before the court.
In a reply to a January 30, 2017 letter requesting his response to a petition seeking his dismissal on stated misbehavior, Justice Logoh said he had taken steps to repair his dented image following the Anas Aremayaw Investigation which exposed corruption in the judiciary.
"I have filed a new suit at the Supreme Court in which I am seeking an injunctive relief against you from continuing with the said proceedings," he added
"I am also seeking a declaration that your conduct to proceed with the impeachment proceedings whilst there is a suit in the Supreme Court challenging your jurisdiction is contemptuous of the Supreme Court," he said.
Justice Logoh filed the contempt writ on Wednesday morning and will be his own lawyer when the case is called, according to a report by myjoyonline.com.
