Governor Eric Holcomb has selected Christopher Goff as Indiana’s next Supreme Court justice. He has served as a Wabash County Superior Court judge since 2005. Goff succeeds Justice Robert Rucker, who retired from the high court last month. Holcomb chose Goff after being presented with three finalists for the position by the Judicial Nominating commission.
Before being appointed a Wabash County Superior Court judge, Goff helped establish the Huntington County Court Appointed Special Advocate program and served on the Huntington County Police Merit Board. After the Superior Court appointment, he implemented the Wabash County Drug Court and the Family Drug Treatment Court.
Holcomb called Goff and forward thinker who will be dedicated to making the court system better. Goff said he was humbled by the appointment.
