Well, this would be a highly amusing story if it weren't so tragic. James Muir-Little, a partner and Head of Family Law at Canterbury solicitors Furley Page has resigned his post as a deputy district judge after apparently being involved in a sordid sex scandal. According to the Telegraph report, Muir-Little cheated on his wife when he met Joanne Hall on an internet website for swingers. They then "exchanged naked pictures and sexual fantasies by email before twice meeting for sex at hotels". All good tabloid newspaper material, but then tragedy struck. When Hall's husband found out about the affair he killed their three-year-old daughter in revenge. He was found guilty of murder in November 2006 and is now serving a life sentence.
Meanwhile, the Office for Judicial Complaints commenced disciplinary proceedings against Muir-Little, but his resignation has ended the investigation.
