Russell County Judge George Greene hospitalized, has been ordered on medical leave by Judge Al Johnson

Russell County Circuit Court Judge George Greene was ordered to take a medical leave of absence Tuesday morning after the court discovered that Greene has been hospitalized for unspecified medical complications since mid-July. The order issued by Judge Albert Johnson, also a Circuit Court judge, comes almost a year after Greene abruptly declared a mistrial in the case of Lisa Graham, who is accused of hiring a family friend to murder her daughter in 2007. The re-trial was scheduled to begin July 22.
