Union group calls for DC chief law judge to resign

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A D.C. based judge's union is calling for the District's chief administrative law judge to resign as a result of ethics and corruption charges.

The International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers has called for Mary Oates Walker to resign and has asked Mayor Gray to remove her from the D.C. Office of Administrative Hearings if she does not.

Walker's ethics and corruption charges were brought by the Board of Ethics and Government Accountability Thursday, according to officials.

"How can anyone with business before the Office of Administrative Hearings have full faith and confidence when the chief judge is up on 19 counts of wrongdoing involving self-dealing, conflicts of interest, obstruction of justice, and employee retaliation?" said IFPTE Secretary-Treasurer Paul Shearon.
