HOUSTON—A state district judge with a record of controversy has resigned. 

Judge Kevin Fine announced months ago that he would not seek re-election.  He’s nearing the end of his four-year term.

Fine made headlines in 2010 when he said the death penalty was unconstitutional.

Fine is reportedly pursuing an out-of-state job that won’t be available if he waits until after the November election to step down.
