The state’s newest judge in the Northern District of Indiana will be formally sworn in Oct. 29 at the Robert A. Grant Federal Building and Courthouse in South Bend.

The investiture ceremony for U.S. District Judge Jon E. DeGuilio begins at 2 p.m., with a reception following from 4 to 6 p.m. at the South Bend Museum of Art, 120 S. St. Joseph St., South Bend.

Before becoming a judge, he was legal counsel for Peoples Bank in Munster and had served as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana from 1993 to 1999. Judge DeGuilio also previously worked as a prosecuting attorney and public defender in Lake County.

The ceremony is open to the public, but seating is limited. To attend, RSVP by calling (574) 246-8023 or e-mail reply@innd.uscourts.gov by Oct. 21.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
