Another change has been made to the Morgan Superior Court bench following the elevation of Judge Peter Foley to the Court of Appeals of Indiana.
Last week, the Indiana Supreme Court announced Senior Judge Warren Haas will now serve as judge pro tem of Morgan Superior Court 1.
Following Foley’s appointment, Senior Judge Jeffrey C. Eggers was appointed to serve as judge pro tem in October. However, Eggers recently notified the Supreme Court that he would no longer be available to serve after Dec. 4.
Warren will step in as judge pro tem until further order of the high court. Applications for the trial court’s vacancy closed Oct. 24.
Haas is entitled to compensation for his service, paid by the state, computed at the same rate as the regular judge commencing from the effective date of his appointment pursuant to Trial Rule 63.
