Gov. Mitch Daniels is now considering three finalists for a Lake County judicial seat left open by the March death of Superior Judge Robert Pete.

The Lake County Judicial Nominating Commission selected the finalists out of 23 attorneys vying for the spot and sent those names to the governor Wednesday. Finalists are: Lake Superior Court Magistrate Kathleen M. Belzeski; Calvin D. Hawkins, a U.S. bankruptcy trustee and an attorney in Gary; and Christina J. Miller, a former Lake Circuit Court magistrate and now an attorney at Lucas Holcomb & Medrea in Merrillville.

The person selected will succeed Judge Pete, who died unexpectedly of natural causes March 6 at his home in Highland. He was appointed to the Superior Court's Civil Division 5 courtroom in Hammond in 2001 and faced a retention vote in 2004.
