An attorney's sexual harrassment allegations against a Georgia judge apparently led to his abrupt resignation last week during an interview with an investigator with the state Judicial Qualifications Commission. The judge scrawled a seven-line resignation on his judicial stationary and handed it to the investigator, who delivered it to the governor. Attached to the resignation was a separate, handwritten consent order in which the judge wrote: "I hereby agree to never seek or accept judicial office again."
