With the announcement from 30th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Kay Spalding Robilio that she will retire on Sept. 1, the Board of Judicial Conduct has withdrawn and dismissed formal charges that were filed against her on May 14. The charges alleged that Robilio independently investigated facts regarding a post-divorce child custody case by making a personal visit to the home of the father and later using her observations to make rulings in the case. The order dismissing the charges, filed July 29, also stipulates that any and all additional complaints that may be filed against Robilio will “not be considered or pursued” so long she does not become a judicial candidate or accept a judicial appointment. The Commercial Appeal has more on the story.
