Ohio: Judge Accused of Dismissing His Lawyer’s Traffic Ticket Quits

Embattled Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Harland H. Hale announced yesterday that he will retire on May 24 after a decade on the bench.

The announcement comes one week after the Ohio Supreme Court disciplinary counsel filed a complaint against Hale. It accuses him of violating the code of judicial conduct by dismissing a traffic ticket against a lawyer who was defending him in state and federal lawsuits related to sexual-harassment complaints.

In a letter he addressed to the “citizens of Franklin County” and supplied to The Dispatch through a staff member, Hale said he has “decided to finish my professional life in the practice of law, hence I will not run for judge again.”
