Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court dismisses as moot misconduct order against Judge Chapala

In the Matter of the Hon. Walter P. Chapala, Senior Judge, issued today, is available here. A list of ILB entries is available here. The Court writes:

The allegations of misconduct here are most serious. But the effect of the most likely sanctions that this Court would mpose if it were to find judge Chapala guilty have already been achieved with his resignation from the bench, the termination of his service as Senior Judge, and his retirement from the bar. We therefore find that the matter is effectively moot and the continued litigation of this matter an inefficient use of limited judicial resources.
