U.S. Judge Jon DeGuilio took his oath and was officially sworn in Oct. 29 as the newest member of the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, where he’ll preside in the South Bend division. The Rev. Edward A. Malloy, who is president emeritus at the University of Notre Dame, gave the invocation.

A former Lake County prosecutor and U.S. Attorney in that part of the state, the Valparaiso University School of Law graduate fills the vacancy created by Judge Allen Sharp’s death last year. President Barack Obama nominated him in January and he began his new duties after the Senate confirmation in May. “When I was a U.S. attorney and a county prosecutor, I really saw my role in those jobs as trying to do justice, trying to be fair with all the interests before me,” he said. “I think this is really an extension of that, where you’re trying to ensure justice and fairness as the law applies to whatever case is before you.”
