Pence appoints new judge to Allen County court

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence has appointed a longtime lawyer and court magistrate to the Allen County Superior Court in Fort Wayne.

Craig Bobay will fill a vacancy created by the transfer of Judge Daniel Heath to the Family Relations Division to replace Judge Stephen Sims, who retired in April.

The governor's office says Bobay is a Fort Wayne native who attended Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and graduated cum laude from Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington. He has 22 years of experience practicing law in Allen County and has served as a local court magistrate since 1997.

The Allen County Judicial Nominating Commission submitted Bobay's name along with two others to Pence for his consideration.
