The domestic violence case that put a Davidson County judge in the hot seat is moving forward. David Chase will go before a judge Thursday, accused of attacking the same woman twice in one Wednesday.

Judge Casey Moreland faced a lot of criticism for waiving Chase's 12-hour cooling-off period.

Wednesday, a staff member read a statement in drug court on behalf of Moreland.

FOX 17 was the only station in the courtroom for that statement, which drew a standing ovation.
Moreland took responsibility for what he called a bad decision and says he will work hard to restore trust in his name.
