Wilder resigns as attorney for council, school board

Sellers: He'll continue to litigate cases he's handling at present

Larry Wilder, the attorney who was found by police sleeping in his neighbor’s garbage can last week after a night of drinking, has resigned as the Jeffersonville City Council attorney.

He also will quit as attorney for the board of trustees at Greater Clark County Schools, newsgathering partner WLKY-TV in Louisville reported today.

Jeffersonville City Council President Connie Sellers said Wilder resigned from his duties for the council Monday evening. A council meeting to discuss his situation was canceled early today.

Wilder will continue to handle pending litigation that the city is already involved in, Sellers said.

“I’m not happy that any of this happened,” she said. “I am happy to see him resign? No. But I think it’s best considering the situation.”

Wilder’s story has become the subject of national headlines during the last week.
