Ind. Courts - More on: "Judge resigns following Call 6 Investigation into wedding business"

Updating this ILB post from Sept. 16, quoting Kara Kenney of WRTV Ch. 6, this afternoon Kenny has a story headed "Attorney Brenda Roper takes over for embattled Judge Michelle Scott." Some quotes:

Indianapolis Attorney Brenda Roper will fill the vacancy left by Judge Michelle Scott, who resigned her position with Center Township Small Claims Court, Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney reported.

Marion County Democratic Party chairman Joel Miller said Roper was the only candidate who filed paperwork within the 72 hour period for the position.

Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., democratic precinct committeemen from Center Township will meet to formally approve Roper taking the job, Miller said.

Scott’s last day in office was October 3. * * *

Scott was defeated in the primary by attorney Brenda Roper, and Scott’s last day would have been Dec. 31.

Roper will fill Scott’s vacancy until January 1, and after that the winner of the Nov. 4 election will take over—either Roper or challenger, Republican candidate Kevin Green.
