Ky. Supreme Court Justice Battling Brain Tumor Retires
FRANKFORT, Ky. - A Kentucky Supreme Court Justice has announced his retirement after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Wil Schroder served the judicial system for nearly 30 years including work as a juvenile judge and a trial judge in Kenton District Court. He sat on the Kentucky Court of Appeals for 15 years and was elected to the Supreme Court in 2006.
In a statement Thursday, Chief Justice John Minton, Jr. said Schroder is “highly ethical and known for standing by his convictions.”
According to a news release from the Administrative Office of the Courts, Schroder plans to focus on his health and spend more time with family.
