Vacancy on Supreme Court 2012 - Justice Massa formal swearing-in to be Monday, May 7th

From a news release:

Mark Massa will be sworn-in as Indiana’s 107th Justice on May 7th in Indianapolis. Acting Chief Justice Brent E. Dickson announced the date and invited the public to watch a live webcast of the ceremony at courts.in.gov.

Monday, May 7th
2:00 p.m. EDT
Supreme Court Courtroom
State House, 3rd Floor

The one-hour ceremony will include remarks from Governor Mitch Daniels, former gubernatorial advisor Mark Lubbers and former Marion County Prosecutor Scott Newman. Governor Daniels named Mr. Massa to succeed Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, who retired in March.

[UPDATE: BTW, in Upcoming Oral Arguments this week, I note that the oral argument this Thursday in Plank will be Justice Massa's first appearance on bench.

Actually, J. Massa's first appearance was in the oral argument held at Martin University on April 20th, as I noted at the time. Unfortunately, that oral argument was not recorded and so has been lost to history.
