Federal Impeachment

Robert W. Archbald

Archbald was a justice of the U.S. Commerce Court. He was impeached by the House in July 1912, for misconduct and the improper appointment of a juror. He was convicted by the Senate in January 1913, and was, by a further vote, barred from holding further office. Archbald’s counsel was Alexander Simpson, a noted scholar on the law of impeachment.
