Ind. Courts - Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Otte prepares to retire

The ILB does not mention many retirements, but this one is noteworthy to me because Frank, as I called him then, before he became "Your Honor," was my next door neighbor in the 1970s. Naturally the mailman had a problem with "Otte" and "Oddi" in adjourning houses! From the press release:

After 28 years of service as a United States Bankruptcy Judge, including two years in recall status, and a 48 year career in the law, the Honorable Frank J. Otte will retire on December 31, 2014. In recognition of his achievements and contributions to the bench and bar, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana will host a private retirement celebration in Judge Otte’s honor on Friday, December 5.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit appointed Judge Otte to a 14-year term as a Bankruptcy Judge for the Southern District of Indiana on October 1, 1986, and he was reappointed to a second term on October 1, 2000. Judge Otte served as Chief Judge from July 1, 1996, to June 29, 2003. He assumed recall status on January 1, 2013.
