Allen Circuit Magistrate Judge Craig J. Bobay has been appointed to Allen Superior Court by Gov. Mike Pence, the governor’s office announced Monday. He will fill a vacancy created when Civil Division Judge Daniel G. Heath transferred to the Family Relations Division following Judge Stephen Sims’ retirement in April.
Bobay has been a magistrate in Allen County since 1997, serving as magistrate in Allen Circuit Court since 2003.
“Craig Bobay is uniquely qualified to serve on the Allen County Superior Court, a court system in which he has played a valuable and integral role for more than 20 years,” Pence said. “I am confident Craig’s academic background, experience, integrity, and heart for his community will enable him to continue to be a strong leader for Allen County and Indiana as he assumes his new role as Superior Court Judge.”
Bobay is a lifelong Fort Wayne resident who received his law degree from Indiana University Maurer School of Law.
