Administrative Judges complete 2020-21 Court Leadership Team
(Fort Wayne, Ind.) – Allen Superior Court’s Board of Judges has elected the leadership team that will guide the Court for the next two years.
Judge Andrea R. Trevino will serve a two-year term as the Court’s Chief Judge, beginning Jan. 1, 2020. The Chief Judge has certain leadership and administrative responsibilities, including overseeing Board of Judges’ meetings, signing the Court’s annual budget and representing Allen County on the Judicial Conference of Indiana Board of Directors.
“Allen County’s judicial branch has a long history of offering leadership and innovation statewide,” Judge Trevino said. “I’m looking forward to the chance to continue that tradition as we look for new and better ways to do our jobs. Staying a step ahead of the future is how we best serve our
community, deliver justice and rebuild lives.”
Judge Trevino has served as supervising Judge of the Allen County Juvenile Center since March 2018. At age 43, she is the youngest woman to serve as Superior Court’s Chief Judge, assuming the role less than two years after taking the bench.
In addition to the Chief Judgeship, Superior Court Judges appointed divisional Administrative Judges in December. Those Judges will also serve two-years terms beginning Jan. 1, 2020. They are:
- Judge Craig J. Bobay, re-elected to serve as Administrative Judge of the Court’s Civil Division. He has served as Civil Division Administrative Judge since 2018.
- Judge Frances C. Gull, re-elected to serve as Administrative Judge of the Criminal Division. She has served as Criminal Division Administrative Judge since 2000.
