Judge moves hearing on Indiana secretary of state

December 28, 2011

A judge has delayed a hearing sought by Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White in his bid to remain in office.

The judge issued an order last week calling for White's removal from office because he was improperly registered as a candidate when he ran for office in 2010. He later put that order on hold and set a Thursday hearing on White's bid to move the civil case to a higher court.

But Marion Circuit Court Judge Louis Rosenberg moved the hearing to Jan. 3 after White's attorney said the original hearing date was troublesome because it fell between the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

White faces voter fraud and other charges in a separate criminal case over voting from his ex-wife's address in the 2010 primary.
