Today I opened my mailbox to find a nice thick envelope from the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission. It was notification the Commission that now former Muncie City Judge Dianna Bennington had filed a Rule 8.2 grievance against me for two blog articles I wrote critical (here and here) and comments I had made on a newspaper website criticizing her mishandling of a contempt case involving Curtis Westbrook. The envelope contained not only the brief letter from DC Executive Secretary Witte but copies of my blog and comments made in conjunction with the story . . .
Bennington filed her grievance against me on February 25, 2014. In the nearly one year time since then, Witte and the Commission provided me with zero notice that a grievance had been filed against me . . .Now that takes chutzpah!
