As she prepares to retire after 25 years on the appellate bench, Court of Appeals of Indiana Judge Margret Robb has been granted certification as a senior judge.

According to a Tuesday order signed by Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush, Robb will take senior status on June 17. Her senior judge certification will remain in effect through Dec. 31.

Judge Margret Robb

After reviewing Robb’s request for senior judge status, the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission found she met the statutory criteria, the order says.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb is in the process of reviewing candidates to fill Robb’s seat on the bench. In April, the JNC named Hamilton Circuit Judge Paul Felix and attorney Stephanie Bibbs and Justin Forkner as finalists for the vacancy.

Robb has the distinction of being the first female chief judge of the COA. Also, the court currently has it’s first female-judge majority.
