Ind. Courts - Allen County Superior Court candidates tout experience

Updating this ILB post from April 26th, identifying the three finalists for the Allen County Superior Court vacancy, Rebecca S. Green has a long story in the Sunday Fort Wayne Journal Gazette with bios and photos of each of the three finalists. A few quotes:

FORT WAYNE – Among the eight candidates were a long-distance runner, a hockey mom, a published author and a long-time prosecutor.

But after hours of interviews and a few private meetings, the Allen County Judicial Nominating Commission, which is itself an eclectic group, picked three individuals as potential candidates for the vacant position of civil division judge on the Allen Superior Court bench.

Those three people – two magistrates and a local attorney in private practice – now await the decision by Gov. Mike Pence to determine who will replace Allen Superior Court Judge Dan Heath. * * *

The three candidates awaiting the governor’s decision are Allen Circuit Court Magistrate Craig Bobay, Allen Superior Court Magistrate Jennifer DeGroote and Michael Michmerhuizen.
