BREAKING: Supreme Court taps judge as disciplinary chief

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court has chosen former Dearborn Superior Judge G. Michael Witte as the newest executive secretary of the Disciplinary Commission.

The court made its decision Friday and announced the selection today, about six months after the nine-member commission began searching for someone to succeed longtime executive secretary Don Lundberg. Lundberg left the post to join Barnes & Thornburg at the start of the year.

As the state’s first Asian-American trial judge, Witte served on the Dearborn County bench from 1985 through 2008 and has continued serving in temporary and senior judging positions since then. He begins as Indiana’s newest chief of lawyer discipline in mid-June.
