Judge Jeffrey R. Heffelfinger has announced his resignation from the Huntington Superior Court, effective Saturday, four years before his term is set to expire.
Heffelfinger was re-elected to the Huntington Superior Court in November 2014, securing his place on the bench until December of 2020. He formerly worked in private practice in Huntington before being elected to a seat on the county court bench.
The Indiana Supreme Court issued an order Tuesday appointing Senior Judge Karen A. Springer as judge pro tempore of the Huntington Superior Court, effective Sunday. She will hold that position until a successor to Heffelfinger has been appointed or until further notice from the Supreme Court.
