After more than twenty-nine years of judicial service, Justice Wil Schroder has decided to retire from the Supreme Court of Kentucky after he was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Justice Schroder said retiring will allow him to focus on his health and to spend more time with his family. Justice Schroder was elected to the Supreme Court of Kentucky in November 2006 to serve the 6th Supreme Court District, a twenty-one county district.
Prior to his election to the Supreme Court, he served on the Kentucky Court of Appeals for more than fifteen years (1991 to 2006) and as a trial judge on the Kenton District Court for almost eight years (1983 to 1991), which included one year as a juvenile judge.
Justice Schroder is honored to have served on the judiciary and feels the deepest gratitude to the citizens of Kentucky who, by electing him, have fostered his life-long career in public service.
