Appeals Court Judge Janet Stumbo has submitted her resignation, ending a judicial career in which she was the first woman elected to the state Supreme Court without having first been appointed.
Stumbo submitted her resignation by letter to Gov. Matt Bevin and chief Justice John Minton. It is effective Dec. 31.
Stumbo said she has loved being a judge but was ready for a break after more than 26 years on the bench.
