After more than 29 years of judicial service, Justice Wil Schroder has decided to resign from the Supreme Court of Kentucky.

Justice Schroder was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, and says retiring will allow him to focus on his health and to spend more time with his family.

Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton Jr. said, "I am very sorry to learn of the retirement of my colleague and dear friend Wil Schroder. Wil is highly ethical and is known for standing by his convictions. He brought a sharp intellect and meticulous approach to his work on the Supreme Court. He felt obligated every day to work hard on behalf of the people in his district and the state. The Supreme Court will not be the same without him."

Justice Schroder was elected to the Supreme Court of Kentucky in November 2006 to serve the 6th Supreme Court District.

The Judicial Nominating Commission will recommend a replacement who will be appointed by Governor Steve Beshear.
