Former Judge Dianna Bennington of Muncie, IN; potty mouth bigot


The state of Indiana presented Dianna Lynn Bennington with a law license in 2003 after he graduated from the University of Houston Law School.


The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications found Judge Bennington guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Knowingly abused her contempt power
  • Violated the due process rights of several defendants
  • Failed to reduce contempt order to writing as required by statute
  • Failed to appoint attorney as constitution required to defendant before finding him in criminal contempt
  • Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  • Failed to advise party of statutory right to appeal finding of contempt
  • Ordered party arrested and jailed without informing the person of the nature of the alleged contempt
  • Illegally ordered arrest of a man in violation of Indiana law
  • Improperly altered a plea agreement in contravention of Indiana law
  • Failed to require recording of misdemeanor guilty pleas and sentencing in accordance with Indiana law
  • Used profanity when dealing with an African American father regarding visitation and referred to him as a nigger
  • After African-American father picked up child for visitation, Dianna followed him in her car for about 15 minutes and then yelled various profanities at him
  • Failed to cooperate with ethics investigators (Up yours, said Dianna!)

In February 2015, the Indiana Supreme Court punished Diana by removing her from the bench and entered an order that permanently bans her from serving in any judicial capacity of any kind, including as a judge pro tem, temporary judge, or a private judge.


Unfortunately, the Surpeme Court did not revoke Dianna the Bigot’s law license. Therefore, as we speak (ca. July 2015) Dianna continues to practice law in Muncie, Indiana.
