Allen Superior Magistrate Judge Marcia Linsky resigned Tuesday without prior notice.
Linsky joined the court in August 1999 and handled misdemeanor and traffic cases. She received her law degree from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 1984.
Allen Superior Court Exeuctive Jerry Noble confirmed Linsky resigned Tuesday but said he couldn't speak as to her reasons for stepping down. News reports out of Fort Wayne suggest that there were concerns about Linksy’s demeanor in court.
Noble said that the court is working out arrangements to cover Linsky's workload, including using a retired magistrate. The court will begin to accept applications for the position and will post information Friday about the vacancy on its website, the state court's website and other sites. The applications will be due by March 15.
