Reuters: Watchdog clears U.S. SEC's in-house judges of bias allegations

"An investigation into allegations that U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in-house judges are prodded to favor the agency in enforcement cases did not uncover evidence to support those claims, the agency's watchdog said in a report."

"The investigation by the SEC's Office of Inspector General followed a May 6, 2015 story in the Wall Street Journal, suggesting that chief SEC administrative judge Brenda Murray tried to sway agency judges to rule against defendants."
