Ind. Courts - News of Elkhart and Monroe judgeships

The Elkhart Truth reports today:

ELKHART -- Judge Stephen Platt wants to keep his job as judge of Elkhart Superior Court 2 and officially began his run Wednesday.

Platt filed paperwork with the Indiana Secretary of State's Office to run in the May Republican primary.

Platt, 60, is in his 25th year on the bench and is the longest sitting judge in Elkhart County, first getting the job in 1982.

He suffered a stroke in his office one night in late August and returned to work on a part-time basis last month. After four months of rehabilitation and therapy, he expects to resume work full time within a few weeks.

The Bloomington Herald-Times reports today:
Bloomington attorney Bob Miller announced Wednesday he'll seek election this year as judge of Monroe Circuit Court's Division 5.

Judge Douglas R. Bridges, who holds that seat, has indicated he will not seek re-election.

Miller, a graduate of the Indiana University School of Law, served as Monroe County's prosecutor from 1987 to 1994 and is now in private practice.
