When he was found guilty, he refused to apologize to the defendants in which he stated "I therefore do publically declare [the defendant] a liar, a rascal and a coward." The justices were charged with having arbitrarily fined and imprisoned Thomas Passmore. Thus the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted to impeach the 3 Federalist judges of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court because of their punishment of Thomas Passmore for contempt. The trial of the three judges by the Pennsylvania State Senate took place in Jan. 1805. On Jan. 25, 1805, the Pennsylvania State Senate acquitted the judges11ocn191060934bookSmith, Horace Wemyss[Scrapbook]BiographyWilliam Smith (1727-1803) born in Scotland, was a clergyman in the Church of England, and first Provost of the College and Academy of Philadelphia, which eventually became the University of Pennsylvania.
