Baker to mark 25 years on Court of Appeals

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The longest-serving current judge on Indiana’s Court of Appeals will mark his 25th year on the appellate bench June 2.

Judge John Baker was appointed to the court in 1989 and is the sixth-longest tenured jurist in the court’s 113-year history, according to the Court of Appeals. During his tenure, Baker has written nearly 4,600 opinions for the court.

Baker was appointed to the court after serving more than 13 years as a judge in Monroe County. He had been a small-claims judge and a judge on the Monroe Superior Court.

Baker also has taught for more than three decades. He retired last year after 33 years teaching at the School of Public and Environment Affairs at Indiana University in Bloomington. He continues to teach at IU McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.

The Indiana State Bar Association will honor Baker’s service with an award next week at its Solo and Small Firm Conference in French Lick.
