A Lake Superior Court judge will retire early next year, prompting the Lake County Judicial Nominating Commission to begin the process of selecting her replacement.
The vacancy will occur in February 2019 when Judge Diane Kavadias Schneider retires from her position in Superior Court, Civil Division 7. Judge Bruce Parent will transfer to Schneider’s position, thus leaving a vacancy in Civil Division, Room 4.
Commission Chairman and Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Slaughter announced Friday that applications to fill Parent’s seat on the bench are now available online and must be submitted through the Indiana Courts Portal until noon CST, January 7, 2019.
The list of applicants will be made available after the deadline. Members of the public are invited to comment via email at firstname.lastname@example.org until noon CST, January 14.
Applicants will be interviewed in Crown Point by the Commission in late January or early February. Details will be announced when determined.
