Yesterday, Governor Holcomb announced Kristina Kantar as his appointment to the Lake County Superior Court to succeed Judge Diane Kavadias Schneider who retired in February.
Kantar was one of three finalists selected by the Lake County Judicial Nominating Commission.
Kantar currently serves as the corporation counsel for the City of Hammond, a position she has held since 2004. In addition to this position, Kantar has also served as judge of the Lake Station City court for two different periods of time and engaged in private practice. Prior to becoming the chief legal officer for Hammond, Kantar served as a juvenile court referee and as a deputy prosecutor.
Kantar will be sworn in as the judge of the Lake County Superior Court on a date to be determined.
