Ind. Courts - No word yet on who Gov. Pence will appoint to Marion Co. Court; some adjustments made

On Aug. 21st the ILB posted the names of the applicants for the then-upcoming Marion County Superior Court vacancy, caused by the Governor's naming of Judge Robert T. Altice to fill the vacancy caused by Judge Friedlander's retirement from the Court of Appeals, the end of August.

There has been no word yet of who Gov. Pence will name to the Marion County Superior Court vacancy.

Judge Altice took the oath of office for the Court of Appeals on Sept. 2.

With the Altice vacancy, several adjustments have been made at the Marion County superior court. Judge John Chavis has moved from Civil Ct 12 to Civil Ct 5. Judge P.J. Dietrick has moved from Ct 21 to Civil Ct. 12. No other changes were made.

Ct 21 currently handles protective orders and environmental ordinance violations. The ILB has learned they are operating on a skeleton staff and with the help of senior judges at the moment.
