The Indiana Supreme Court is considering removing a judge in Elkhart County from a case involving misconduct within the Elkhart PD.

Thursday, the state’s Supreme Court heard oral arguments debating whether statements Judge Teresa Cataldo has made in the past, as well as her personal relationships, could give an appearance of bias.

Pink Robinson, Iris Seabolt, and Leon Tyson are all petitioning to overturn their three separate violent felony convictions.

Petitioners are pointing to Judge Cataldo’s personal relationship with Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker, and her previous marriage to an ex-EPD reserve officer, as concerns.

No decision to remove her has been made yet by the Indiana Supreme Court.
