Ind. Courts - "La Porte County welcomes new judges"

From the Michigan City News-Dispatch, a story by Jessica O'Brien that reports:

MICHIGAN CITY — The changing of the guard in La Porte County courts was celebrated on Wednesday, recognizing the retirement of two judges and the robing of four incoming judges.

The ceremony recognized the retirements of Judges William Boklund of La Porte County Superior Court No. 4 and Kathleen Lang of Superior No. 1. Both chose to step down at the end of their terms in December, retiring from the bench and now serving as senior judges. * * *

The four incoming judges were ceremonially robed in the courtroom on Wednesday, signifying their transition into judgeship – all either elected or appointed to their positions late last year.

Judge Greta Friedman of La Porte County Superior Court No. 4 received her robe from husband, Shaw Friedman; Judge Michael Bergerson of La Porte County Superior Court No. 1 from son, Michael Bergerson; Judge Jeffrey Thorne of La Porte County Superior Court No. 3 from Senior Judge Steven King; and Magistrate Pamela Munsey from daughter, Kaylen Krause.
