The Lexington Herald Leader reports that Family Court Judge Tamra Gormley is accused again of judicial misconduct

“A family court judge who was reprimanded and suspended about a year ago has been accused again of judicial misconduct, according to a notice by the state’s Judicial Conduct Commission.

A hearing on charges against Judge Tamra Gormley, whose district covers Scott, Woodford and Bourbon counties, is scheduled for Jan. 12 in Fayette Circuit Court.

The commission, the state’s judicial oversight body, charged Gormley with keeping parents with drug problems from their children without having appropriate hearings. And the commission charged Gormley with failing to recuse herself from a custody case after the state’s Court of Appeals ruled Rowan County was the appropriate venue. ”

The article says Judge Gormley has not yet served a 45 day suspension granted her by the Supreme Court for a prior violation.
