INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) — Governor Eric Holcomb has yet to assign a new Tippecanoe Superior Court Five judge.
In the meantime, several senior judges will be filling in.
Former Superior Court Five Judge Sean Persin was sworn in as Circuit Court judge Tuesday.
He replaced Judge Thomas Busch, who resigned with three years left in his term.
Persin says he'd like to assure the community all matters in Superior Five will be handled in the same fashion during the transition period.
The Governor's Office says there is no set timeline for the appointment.
However, there are six applicants up for the position.
