Bolton has resigned effective Oct. 15 as part of an agreement with the Judicial Investigation Commission.

Bolton’s agreement to resign made formal disciplinary action unnecessary, according to the admonishment filed at the state Supreme Court clerk’s office by Christopher C. Wilkes, vice chair of the Judicial Investigation Commission.
