Ind. Courts - "Allen Circuit Court magistrate seat open after promotion"

Updating this ILB entry from June 25th, Rebecca S. Green reports today in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette in a story that begins:

FORT WAYNE – Allen Circuit Court Judge Tom Felts is looking for a new magistrate after his longtime domestic relations magistrate Craig Bobay was appointed to an open judge’s seat.

In an unrelated announcement, former Circuit Court hearing officer John Kitch III was sworn in as a Circuit Court magistrate – a second magistrate’s position created by state law in 2012. Kitch oversees the child support enforcement division in Circuit Court.

With the new law, the state now pays Kitch’s salary. The county paid him as a hearing officer, which he had been since 2008.

The deadline for applying for the other open magistrate’s seat is Monday, and interviews will be conducted next week. Applications must be submitted to Eric Zimmerman, and not through the county’s Internet application process.
