Embattled Pittsfield District Court Judge Thomas Estes resigns after a damning review of his misconduct is made public.

 

The state Supreme Judicial Court sharply criticized Estes in a six-page order of censure issued yesterday.

 

In turn, Judge Estes tendered his resignation effective today.

Key to his censure was his engaging in found to be abusive hanky panky with a lesser courthouse employee in his chambers in the Belchertown District Courthouse after hours.

 

No word as yet, however, as to what may happen to his pension given his improprieties.
