FORT MITCHELL, Ky. (AP) - The family of former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Wil Schroder says he has died. His cousin, Kenton County Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus, told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/1aN7Uip) that the 67-year-old passed away late Saturday night.
Schroder retired from the court in January after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Before being elected to an eight-year term on the Supreme Court in 2006, he served on the Court of Appeals for 15 years and as a trial judge on Kenton District Court for nearly eight years.
In May, Northern Kentucky Bar Association honored Schroder with its Legacy of Justice Award.
