Ind. Courts - Lake County "Judicial vacancy draws crowd of applicants"

Bill Dolan of the NWI Times reports:

CROWN POINT | Some 21 attorneys, several with judicial experience, have applied to fill a vacancy in the Lake Superior Court, Civil Division.

The Lake County Judicial Nominating Commission, a panel of lawyers and lay people, will hold interviews of all applicants May 7 and 8. They will select three finalists whose names will be forwarded to Gov. Mike Pence, who is expected to name the new judge from among them early this summer.

Court Room 4's bench has been vacant since the Jan. 8 death of Judge Gerald Svetanoff. Senior Judge Thomas Webber is presiding until the governor selects a permanent replacement.

See the story for the 21 names.
