AJC this morning has a write-up on all the judges who are being forced to resign for misconduct.
Apparently this one confused this role of Judge with playing Santa Claus:
“This month, Cobb County Superior Court Chief Judge Kenneth Nix abruptly announced he would leave Oct. 6 and admitted he had “flicked” the two women’s bottoms while they sat in his lap for a photo. The women countered in a public statement that it was no playful touch, it was a “sex crime.””
Others refused to show up to work, never bothered to rule on cases, and took court property for personal use.
Nathan Deal isn’t the only one who quits rather than have is misconduct exposed.
“Most judges choose to resign when confronted rather than go through the embarrassing process of having the commission bring formal, and public, charges against them. If they resign, the allegations often remain secret, which has brought criticism of the agency.”
