Charges filed against Shelby Co Circuit Court Judge Robilio

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct board has filed formal charges against longtime Shelby County Circuit Court Judge Kay Robilio for alleged misconduct in a domestic relations case she handled last year.

In the filing made earlier in May in Nashville, Timothy Discenza, the Disciplinary Counsel for the Board of Judicial Conduct, alleges RJudge Robilio improperly investigated a post-divorce child custody case, by making a personal visit to the home of the father.

The filing asserts this act fell outside of Robilio's judicial purview. Judges are to hear arguments from the two sides, not investigate independently according to the Code of Judicial Conduct.

Robilio may have to face the Board of Judicial conduct as a result of the filing.

She has 30 days to respond to the charges.
