The National Organization for Women is proud of the work Montana NOW has undertaken to remove Judge G. Todd Baugh from the bench by filing an official complaint with the Montana Judicial Standards Commission. Baugh has come under intense scrutiny after sentencing a middle-aged teacher to only 30 days in jail for the rape of his 14 year old student, Cherice Moralez; Moralez later committed suicide.

Montana NOW, along with allied organizations UltraViolet and MoveOn.org, have collected 140,000 signatures on a petition demanding Judge Baugh be removed. A separate letter written by Montana NOW President Marian Bradley - and co-signed by survivors of sexual assault -- has received 346 signatures.

Members of the National Organization for Women from all over the country stand in solidarity with the women and men fighting for justice for Cherice Moralez and all victims of sexual violence.
