A Gilmer County, Georgia judge resigned after his impartiality was challenged in a bitter dispute between two former business and love affairs partners after one accused his Sino-American ex-lover of being a "Chinese communist apparatchik" and active member of the Chinese Communist Party to be in writing and in court.
Attorneys for the plaintiff, a naturalized American citizen, said Judge John Worcester allowed "appalling anti-Asian rhetoric" to pass without comment. The denial motion also stated that the judge sat on two motions for months and then ruled in favor of the defendant, a Caucasian, three days after receiving a letter from the plaintiff's attorney complaining about the delay.
