Ind. Courts - Women head Indiana courts [Updated]
A reader has sent this message:
Ms. Oddi,ILB: Pretty remarkable, I certainly hadn't noticed! Thanks to the reader, who prefers anonymity.
In honor of Women's History Month, I thought I would pass along an interesting fact that I have not heard highlighted. The highest judicial officers in and over the State of Indiana are now almost all women (the exception being the Chief Justice of the United States):
That is an impressive list. And it must surely be the first time in Indiana's history that all of these offices have been held by women at the same time.
- Justice Kagan (circuit justice for the Seventh Circuit)
- Chief Judge Wood (CA 7)
- Chief Justice Rush (Ind.)
- Chief Judge Vaidik (Ind. Ct. App.)
- Chief Judge Magnus-Stinson (S.D. Ind.)
- Chief Judge Springmann (N.D. Ind.)
I am a pretty loyal reader of law blog but haven't seen this noted anywhere. I apologize if I missed it. I just thought it was something worth pointing out.
[Updated almost immediately] A tweet from @Legallyageek: "@indianalawblog and of course, don't forget Chief Judge Robyn Moberly in the SD Bankruptcy Court
