Mark Torre, Jr. wants Supreme Court justice disqualified from his appeal

Posted: Updated:

Convicted former GPD officer Mark Torre Jr. argues Supreme Court Justice Robert Torres should be disqualified from hearing his appeal case before the high court.

Torre's response comes after Justice Torres in court filings denied any alleged conflicts.

But, Torre again states Justice Torres and his wife, Senator Mary Torres, have been spotted in photos with Domino Lux International Fraternity.

The victim, fellow officer Elbert Piolo, was a member of the brotherhood.

Torre has since been sentenced to eight years for the 2015 shooting death of Piolo.

Now, Justice Torres had stated disqualification from the case is not warranted arguing against the claims made by defense.

Meantime, Mark  Torre Jr. remains under house arrest pending his appeal of the negligent homicide conviction. Oral arguments are set for November 1.
