Metro General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland is taking a medical leave.
Another judge will be filling in for Moreland for at least the coming week.
This comes after a week of investigative stories by the Channel 4 I-Team.
The I-Team first reported about the suicide of a woman who had just returned from a trip out of state that included Moreland and defense attorney Bryan Lewis. Witnesses told police the woman had threatened to expose something about the two.
The I-Team also uncovered traffic tickets and court fines that Moreland dismissed for another woman who was on that trip.
