Judge W. Mitchell Nance of Kentucky, who tried recusing himself from homosexual adoption cases by declaring his conscientious objection, informed Kentucky’s Judicial Conduct Commission that he is resigning effective Dec. 16. The family court judge of 14 years, who objected to these kinds of adoptions based on his religious beliefs and the fact that these kinds of adoptions were “not in the child’s best interest,” has been formally charged with violating ethics rules and committing misconduct in office. Nance’s attorneys hope the resignation will make those charges moot. The commentary by FACT’s president on May 5, 2017 predicted this would happen and explained why.
