White Appeal Dismissed, Moving To Trial Court

The Indiana Court of Appeals has dismissed an appeal by ousted Secretary of State Charlie White so he can seek a remedy at the trial court.

An order signed by Chief Appeals Court Judge Margret Robb and posted online dismisses White's appeal so he can pursue post-conviction relief before Hamilton Superior Court Judge Steven Nation.

White's appeals attorney declined comment on the developments.

Indiana law bars convicted felons from holding office.
