Ind. Courts - "Pence Appoints Alicia Gooden To Marion Superior Court" [Updated twice]

Gary Welsh of Advance Indiana is reporting the above in his blog this morning.

No news release has been issued by the Governor's office as of now.

See this Oct. 13th post from the ILB.

I will post the news release here if one is issued ...

[Update at 9:58] Here is a copy of the news release:

Indianapolis - Governor Mike Pence today named Alicia Gooden as Marion County Superior Court Judge. She fills the position previously vacated by Judge Robert Altice, Jr. who was appointed by Governor Pence to the Court of Appeals in July.

"I'm grateful today to name Alicia Gooden as Marion County Superior Court Judge," said Governor Pence. "I'm confident that Gooden's extensive experience in both private and public law will serve her well in this new role."

She has also worked at the Marion County Public Defender Agency and at private law firms in Indianapolis.
