Kansas judge resigns ahead of disciplinary hearing

KSAL StaffSeptember 10, 2016

A Kansas judge facing a disciplinary hearing related to a sexual-harassment case against him has submitted his resignation and wants the hearing canceled as moot.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2cbU5UN) reports Sedgwick County Judge Timothy Henderson sent a resignation letter Tuesday to Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss and Gov. Sam Brownback. Henderson gave Sunday – Sept. 11 – as his official resignation date.

Henderson lost his re-election bid last month.

The high court last year suspended Henderson for 90 days after finding he committed “wide-ranging” misconduct. The court said that included subjecting multiple female attorneys and staff members to repeated inappropriate, offensive comments.

Henderson is scheduled to appear before the court for a new disciplinary hearing Monday over questions whether he tried to cover up the inappropriate conduct.
