The Colorado federal judge who oversaw the insider trading trial of former Qwest Communications CEO Joe Nacchio is resigning as complaints of judicial misconduct are investigated. Edward W. Nottingham ceased his duties immediately, according to a statement on the 10th Circuit Web site, which said multiple misconduct complaints were being investigated by the circuit's judicial council. A statement issued by the office of the judge's attorney said Nottingham "is deeply remorseful for his actions."
