Holcomb announced Foley’s selection to the appellate court on Sept. 14. Foley succeeded longtime Judge Edward Najam Jr., who retired this past summer after aging out of the COA.

Senior Judge Jeffrey C. Eggers is serving as judge pro tempore of Morgan Superior Court 1 until Holcomb names Foley’s official replacement.
