Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has selected private practitioner Leanna Weissmann as the next member of the Indiana Court of Appeals.

A large amount of Weissmann’s career has been undertaking appellate work. She has filed more than 400 appeals on both civil and criminal issues and argued before the Court of Appeals, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the U.S. Supreme Court, where she won.

“Leanna Weissmann is a legal scholar who will bring her keen intellect and wide range of expertise to the court,” Gov. Holcomb said. “She is a dedicated practitioner with a deep commitment to her community and all Hoosiers. She will serve honorably and justly on the Court of Appeals.”

Vigo Superior Court Judge Lakshmi “Lucky” Reddy and private practitioner Lisa Garcia Reger were the other two finalists. This is only the second time all the finalists for an appellate court position were women.

Weissmann will replace Judge John Baker, who retired in July after serving on the Indiana Court of Appeals for more than 30 years.
