Ind. Courts - More on "Judicial Qualifications Commission files charges against Muncie City Court Judge" [Updated]

Updating this ILB post from Dec. 11, which included a link to the 31-page charging document, the Supreme Court public information officer announced this morning:

Today, the Judicial Qualifications Commission filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking that Judge Bennington be suspended.
The ILB has now posted the 11-page memo in support of the Commission's petition for interim suspension, which cites "a pervasive pattern of injudicious public conduct which has escalated during the Commission's investigation."

[Updated at 12:33 PM] Here is the new Muncie Star-Press story on the latest action.
