Saddam trial judge resigns

From Fox News.
BAGHDAD, Iraq — The chief judge in Saddam Hussein's trial has submitted his resignation after becoming fed up with criticism that he had let the proceedings spin out of control, a court official said Saturday.
But it wasn't clear if Rizgar Mohammed Amin's resignation had been accepted amid behind-the-scenes efforts to change his mind.
Amin is the head of a five-judge tribunal overseeing the case against Saddam and seven co-defendants for the deaths of more than 140 Shiite

Muslims in the town of Dujail in 1982 in retaliation for an assassination attempt.

I'm not sure if this will have huge impact, though it's not good.
But, for the very first test of a free justice system, I say they're still doing well.
