Judge at highest court to be neutralized

It is actually the first time in history of Switzerland, that the highest court (Bundesgericht [1] ) had to decide to suspend the Judge from judging. Since Judges are elected for a period of 6 years, we do not know an impeachment-procedure, as e.g. in US. The reason for the procedure dates back to 11th Feb. 2003, where the Judge spit at – or in direction – of a journalist [2] from the NZZ [3].
