Indiana Court Admonishes Judge for Handling Custody Matter

This week the Indiana Supreme Court publicly admonished Marion County Superior Court Commissioner Christopher D. Haile for his handling of a child custody dispute. Haile had issued an ex parte emergency order changing custody from the child’s mother to her former husband. The former husband alleged in a petition filed with the court that she had missed a deadline for returning the child to his custody, the child had a dental appointment the following day, and school orientation the following week. The Indiana court said neither situation constituted an emergency, and the child’s mother should have been given an opportunity to be heard in court. Source.
