It wasn't all bad news for Brown. She gets to keep her license and can still practice law.
Brown, who was rarely seen at Democratic events or outside of her court duties, was running for reelection. She's no longer eligible for judicial office according to the ruling. With her forced from the race for judge, there will only be 10 Democrats running on the ballot in May for eight judicial slots.
Former Marion County Assessor Greg Bowes and Indianapolis Attorney David Hennessey will be on the ballot along with slated Democrats Judge Annie Christ Garcia, Judge Barbara Cook Crawford, Judge David Dreyer, Judge Jim Osborn, Angela Davis, Shatrese Flowers, Christina Klineman, and Marcel Pratt.
