New chief chosen to replace retiring D.C. federal judge named in sex assault case

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 22, 2016

The District’s federal court named a new chief judge Thursday, one day after Richard W. Roberts retired, citing unspecified health issues that he said prevented him from continuing to serve.

The early retirement announcement coincided with the filing of a lawsuit by a Utah woman who accuses Roberts of sexually assaulting her decades ago when she was a 16-year-old witness in a murder trial Roberts was prosecuting. Roberts’s departure from the bench also followed the filing of a “misconduct complaint” March 7 by the Utah attorney general’s office, which investigated the woman’s allegations.
