Ind. Courts - State bar honors Allen Superior Court Judge Charles Pratt as the state’s Outstanding Judge

From this brief report in today's Fort Wayne Journal Gazette:

The Indiana State Bar Association named Allen Superior Court Judge Charles Pratt as the state’s Outstanding Judge after he was nominated by local attorneys.

Pratt, who serves in the Family Relations Division of Allen Superior Court, handles domestic relations cases, adoptions and child abuse and neglect cases.

Elected to the bench in 1998, Pratt has served as chairman of the Indiana Juvenile Justice Improvement Committee and recently completed service on a national juvenile restorative justice task force.

Over the years, Pratt has introduced a number of measures such as mediation processes and a process known as “Family Group Decision Making.”

Some of his changes have been replicated in other Indiana counties, according to an Allen Superior Court statement.
