Ind. Courts - "La Porte County Judge Boklund says he won’t seek fourth term on the bench"
Tim Moran's long Sept. 26th story in the Michigan City News Dispatch begins:
MICHIGAN CITY — Judge William Boklund will not seek a fourth term as Judge of La Porte Superior Court 4 in Michigan City. Boklund, who has served as a judge for nearly two decades, announced his decision Wednesday.
“It has been an honor to serve the people of La Porte County and the State of Indiana,” Boklund said, noting that choosing not to run was “a very difficult decision to make.”
Before taking the bench at La Porte Superior Court 4 on Dec. 13, 1993, Boklund practiced law for 15 years. As judge, he has presided over a number of different types of cases.
“As odd as it sounds, very little in the practice of law prepared me for this job. I have seen things, and had to decide things, that no one could make up,” he said.
