Linda Armstrong, district judge of the 53rd Judicial District since 1998, announced her resignation Monday morning.
Armstrong withdrew from the judicial race in the 2014 Election just before the filing deadline in January, citing health issues. She said at that time that she didn’t know if she would serve the remainder of her term, and in Monday’s statement, she reiterated those concerns.
Her last day on the bench will be March 16, and the decision for replacing her would fall to Gov. Steve Beshear after a complicated judicial process.
