Ind. Courts - Boyer Appointed New Allen Superior Court Small Claims Court Magistrate

From the news release:

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Thomas P. Boyer has been named the newest Magistrate Judge of the Allen Superior Court Small Claims Division. Boyer replaces Magistrate Jerry Ummel, who recently announced his retirement after 27 years on the bench. 17 candidates were interviewed.

“The Small Claims Division handles 26,000 new filings every year,” said Allen Superior Court Judge Craig J. Bobay. “Handling that many cases in a timely and efficient manner is a continuous challenge. To find a candidate as experienced as Tom Boyer is of enormous benefit to Small Claims and to the people it serves.”

Boyer currently serves as a Magistrate for the Allen Superior Court Family Relations Division, where he has been on the bench since 1999. Prior to becoming a judicial officer, Magistrate Boyer was a founding partner in the law firm of Avery Boyer & VanGilder.
