Two temporary judges have been selected by the Indiana Supreme Court to fill vacancies in Wayne and Madison counties.
Judge G. Michael Witte will serve in Wayne Superior Court 1, which became vacant after Judge P. Thomas Snow was named chairman of the Alcohol & Tobacco Commission. Judge Witte is currently a senior judge and vice-chair of the American Bar Association Judicial Division.
Attorney Geoffrey B. Yelton will fill the vacancy in Madison Superior Court 4 following Judge David W. Hopper's death in February. Yelton was admitted to the bar in 1983 and served as a civil magistrate for all Madison County courts from 1995 to 2000.
Both will serve as temporary judges until the vacancy is filled by an appointment from the governor or until further order of the court.
