Massa Sworn In As Indiana's 107th Supreme Court Justice

From the Associated Press The newest member of the Indiana Supreme Court has been sworn into office. The court says Mark Massa took the oath to become Indiana's 107th Supreme Court justice during a private ceremony this morning. He was sworn in by the man he is replacing on the court, former Chief Justice Randall Shepard. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels picked Massa last month to fill the vacancy created by Shepard's retirement. The 51-year-old Massa was chief counsel to Daniels in the governor's office from 2006 to 2010. The Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission will select a new chief justice from among the court's five members. It will be a while before Massa officially wears his Supreme Court robe since the court doesn't have any oral arguments scheduled until April 20.
