White disciplinary proceedings stayed, suspension still in effect

November 6, 2012

The Indiana Supreme Court agreed Nov. 1 to hold off on proceeding with a disciplinary investigation of former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White after White requested a stay. His law license, which was suspended in May, remains suspended.

The justices entered the interim suspension earlier this year after White was convicted of several felonies following a trial in Hamilton County on voter fraud charges. White asked to have his disciplinary proceedings stayed pending resolution of the appeal of his criminal charges. The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission didn’t object to the requested stay “in the interests of judicial economy,” according to the order.

Justice Mark Massa did not participate in the decision.
