MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission has filed ethics charges against a Greene County probate judge over a case regarding her father’s estate.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/2axd9tT) reports that the commission filed the charges against Greene County Probate Judge Earlean Isaac on Wednesday to the Alabama Court of the Judiciary.

The commission says Isaac violated judicial ethics by presiding over and failing to disqualify herself from a case involving the probate of her father’s estate. The commission notes that Isaac and her siblings were heirs to the estate.

The commission also says that Isaac admitted that she was unaware of the requirements of the Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics despite serving as probate judge for 27 years.

Isaac’s hearing will be held Monday morning.

Isaac couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday.
