Ind. Courts - Indianapolis attorney resigns from the bar
In In the Matter of: Todd A. WOODMANSEE, filed May 8th, the Supreme Court accepts the resignation of Mr. Woodmansee, writing in part:
A "Verified Complaint for Disciplinary Action" against Respondent was filed on May 14, 2013. Respondent has now tendered to this Court an affidavit of resignation from the bar of this State, pursuant to Indiana Admission and Discipline 23(17), which requires an acknowledgement that the material facts alleged are true. In addition, Respondent acknowledges that there is presently pending an investigation into other allegations of misconduct and that Respondent could not successfully defend himself if prosecuted.This May 14, 2013 post at the Indy Democrat Blog reported "Woodmansee Running for Superior Court Slot":
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the resignation from the bar of this State tendered by Respondent is accepted effective immediately.
There is one hat in the ring. Local attorney Todd Woodmansee is running for Superior Court Judge. He filed on May 7. Woodmansee is a former Deputy Attorney General and Deputy Prosecutor. He has been in private practice for the last 10 years. Woodmansee just recently moved to Pike Township from Warren Township, where he still owns his old home in Irvington. Woodmansee is just the first candidate in a race that is expected to draw several.A later post, from Jan. 22, 2014, reports:
Attorney Todd Woodmansee has abandoned his bid for Superior Court Judge and has endorsed his prospective slating opponent, Marcel Pratt, according to a post on his Facebook site earlier today.Pratt will be on the fall ballot.
The move by Woodmansee leaves Pratt, the husband of U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, unopposed at the February 8 Marion County Democratic Party Slating Convention. Woodmansee had been campaigning for the position for since even before he filed officially in May.
