Three judges appointed to serve in the Lake Superior Court will participate in a judicial robing ceremony Thursday.
Gov. Eric Holcomb last year selected former Lake Circuit magistrate judge Stephen E. Scheele, former Merrillville Town Court judge Gina Jones and former Hammond city attorney Kristina Kantar to fill the judicial vacancies in the northwestern Indiana county’s superior court bench.
The Lake County Judicial Nominating Commission nominated Scheele to succeed Judge William E. Davis in Lake Superior Court, Civil Division Room 5; Jones to succeed Judge John Pera in Lake Superior Court, Civil Division Room 6; and Kantar to succeed Judge Diane Kavadias Schneider in Lake Superior Court, Civil Division Room 4.
The robing ceremony will take place after 5:30 p.m. CST Thursday at the Halls of St. George, 905 E. Joliet St., Schererville.
