State high court dismisses case against judgeJanuary 17, 2019
By The Associated Press
NEW HAVEN — The Indiana Supreme Court has dismissed a misconduct case against a recently retired northeastern Indiana judge.
New Haven City Court Judge Geoff Robison presided over the court until his Dec. 26 retirement. New Haven’s city council voted the same day to close the court.
Indiana’s Commission on Judicial Qualifications charged Robison in September with judicial misconduct for allegedly disobeying orders from Allen County’s prosecutor in 2015 to stop processing state infractions filed with the court.
Robison also allegedly allowed juveniles to resolve cases through a deferral program, which isn’t permitted.
The Journal Gazette reports that Chief Justice Loretta Rush wrote in Tuesday’s order that the case was dismissed because Robison resigned, the court no longer exists and pursuing the matter “would be an inefficient use of limited judicial resources.”
