SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- U.S. District Judge Paul Cassell is resigning so he can teach law classes at the University of Utah.
Cassell submitted his letter of resignation to President Bush today. His last day in court will be Nov. 5.
Cassell worked at Utah's Quinney College of Law before becoming a U.S. District Judge. He says he's excited to return to the University of Utah to begin teaching again and that he's looking forward to researching crime victims' rights.
