Van Davis was the subject of a number of local investigative news reports after she missed more than the maximum number of days that the Supreme Court would provide her with a substitute judge. Sources also indicate that Van Davis spent up to a month on an Egyptian vacation and spent more than $36,000 in taxpayer money on trips allegedly intended to enhance her legal education. After announcing her resignation, Van Davis attributed the decision to her upcoming wedding--not her questionable tenure on the bench.
