Kansas Supreme Court suspends Sedgwick County judge

Kansas Supreme Court suspends Sedgwick County judge

The Kansas Supreme Court has ordered a 90-day, unpaid suspension for Sedgwick County District Judge Timothy H. Henderson for violating the code of judicial conduct.

The ruling handed down Friday comes after a finding by the Judicial Qualifications Commission that Henderson had sexually harassed female attorneys and staff. The panel had also found that he tried to prejudice an attorney because of the judge’s personal views and had tried to use his office to get his wife a job.

The court also ordered Henderson to complete within a year a course in sexual harassment, and file a report with the court detailing his training.

It further prohibited him from supervising any judicial branch employee other than his chambers staff for two years after that training.
