CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Parties have come to an agreement on a judge in the case of a Carroll County commissioner ousted last month over residency issues.
As we previously reported, in a special meeting in March, the county council declared the office of Commissioner for District 1 – occupied by Ron Slavens since 2010 – as vacant, citing lack of residency.
Slavens filed a lawsuit against both the county council and the county Republican Party.
The judge, who has just recently been chosen, will be Clinton County Circuit Court Judge Bradley Mohler.
We're told by the Carroll County Courthouse that all parties involved agreed on the judge, but more stipulations from the county and Slavens need to be clarified before things can proceed.
The Carroll County Courthouse says the case will always belong to Carroll County, however Judge Mohler can decide to hold the hearings in his courtroom in Clinton County.
