IN Judge Peter Nemeth Sanctioned Before Retirement

The state Supreme Court has privately reprimanded a former northern Indiana probate judge.

The South Bend Tribune reports that Peter Nemeth agreed to the sanction last month, before he retired as St. Joseph County probate judge. Nemeth had served as a probate judge since 1993.

The Judicial Qualifications Commission filed a misconduct charge against Nemeth in August claiming he violated the code of judicial conduct during a 2011 guardianship hearing by suggesting it was inappropriate for taxpayers to pay for a sign language interpreter for a woman seeking custody of a deaf teenager when she “hadn’t paid taxes for several years.”

Nemeth has said he doesn’t believe he did anything wrong.
