Judge McLaughlin Recuses and Requests Transfer of Public Records Lawsuit

Update on Brewington lawsuit seeking Grand Jury Audio (Filed February 21, 2017) - On March 1, 2017, Judge Sally McLaughlin (formerly Blankenship) filed the Court’s ORDER OF RECUSAL AND TRANSFER, recusing herself from the case involving my lawsuit seeking the audio from my grand jury investigation. McLaughlin’s order also “requests the Clerk to transfer this cause of action to Dearborn Superior Court 1 since Dearborn Superior Court 2, the judge of Dearborn Superior Court 2, and the Dearborn Superior Court 2 court reporter are named as defendants in said matter.” The case was originally assigned to McLaughlin’s court by the Dearborn County Clerk.

There is no word on whether Rush County Superior Court Judge Brian Hill will continue to serve as Special Judge in my Petition for Post-Conviction Relief (“PCR”), filed February 22, 2017 as Hill is also name as a defendant in the public records case. There is also no word on whether the PCR will remain in the Dearborn Superior Court 2 as the lawsuit also names court report Barbara Ruwe as a defendant because it was Ruwe who altered grand jury transcripts and audio.
