Judge retires, ending investigation by judiciary commission



SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A Louisiana judge’s retirement brings an end to a state judiciary commission investigation of his conduct.

KTBS-TV reports that Shreveport City Judge Lee Irvin retired Thursday.

Irvin, 64, had been suspended without pay since January.

He was being investigated regarding a romantic relationship with a woman who had cases before him.

Irvin’s attorney told KTBS he had nothing to add regarding his client’s retirement.

The attorney said Irvin had planned to retire at the end of 2020 prior to the investigation and decided to move his retirement date up, effectively ending the investigation.

KTBS reported that Irvin will receive his full pension.
