A northern Indiana judge says he'll defend himself against a charge that he violated the code of judicial conduct by making an improper comment to someone applying to be a guardian.
St. Joseph County Probate Judge Peter Nemeth (NEH'-mihth) said Tuesday he's confident he acted appropriately.
The Judicial Qualifications Commission filed a misconduct charge against Nemeth, saying he acted inappropriately during a 2011 hearing. The commission says he said then it would be improper for a woman to ask taxpayers to pay for a sign language interpreter when she "hadn't paid taxes for several years."
