JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has suspended Chancery Judge Joe Dale Walker with pay while waits to hear the results of an inquiry by the Commission on Judicial Performance Commission.

Walker sits on the bench in Jefferson Davis, Lawrence, Simpson and Smith counties.

The Commission on Judicial Performance had sought interim suspension with pay for Walker while its investigation continues into alleged inappropriate actions regarding a conservatorship in Walker’s court.

Walker is represented by State Rep. Bob Evans, who is an attorney in Monticello. Evans had asked for the proceedings to be delayed until after Legislature adjourns in April.

The Supreme Court said Thursday that issue was moot because of its interim suspension order.
