The Associated Press is reporting that Judge Lynn Rosenthal of Broward County, Florida has resigned her position following her arrest for DUI in May 2014. On May 27, 2014, a DUI investigation involving Judge Rosenthal was initiated after she hit a parked police vehicle and crashed into a parking lot gate. She would later resolve her case through a plea to an amended charge of reckless driving. Judge Rosenthal maintained that she had been given an incorrect dose of a sleeping aid. She agreed initially to a 90-day suspension without pay from her job for the DUI arrest, but the Florida Supreme Court wanted to conduct a full hearing on the matter. Judge Rosenthal’s last day on the bench will be October 31, 2015.
