Holcomb appoints new judge to Vanderburgh Superior Court

A longtime private practitioner in a small Evansville law firm was appointed as judge of the Vanderburgh Superior Court on Thursday. Gov. Eric Holcomb announced the appointment of the new jurist who will succeed Judge Richard G. D’Amour upon his retirement in April. 

Holcomb announced his selection of Thomas A. Massey to succeed D’Amour. The principal of Massey Law Offices LLC has been in private practice in Evansville since he was admitted to the bar after graduating from Valparaiso University Law School in 1984. Alongside fellow firm attorneys Joseph H. Harrison Jr. and Lee Veazey, Massey has focused primarily on family law and civil litigation.

The announcement issued by Holcomb said Massey, who earned his undergraduate degree from Purdue University, will be sworn in as the judge at a later date.

D’Amour has served on the Vanderburgh Superior Bench since 2010. He was elected after serving as a magistrate judge for five years, before which he practiced law in Evansville for 24 years.
