A personal relationship that developed on Facebook has apparently sparked the end of a 17-year judicial career for Georgia Judge Ernest H. Woods III. Woods resigned, effective Jan. 15, in a letter to Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, just days after the publication of information about his Facebook dialogue with a woman who was a defendant in a matter pending before his court. "I call it a retirement," Woods said on Tuesday. "I just got tired of living under a microscope."
