JUDGE BALTASAR GARZÓN got the boot from Spain's judiciary:
Spain's crusading judge Baltasar Garzon was suspended from his post Friday ahead of his trial on charges of abuse of power linked to a probe of Franco-era crimes, judicial sources said.

They said the body that oversees the judiciary, the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ), decided unanimously to suspend Garzon, two days after the Supreme Court cleared the way for his trial.
It's just one of the three cases he's been investigated for.
