February 18, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Terry A. Crone, St. Joseph (Indiana) Circuit Court Judge and a 1974 graduate of DePauw University, has been appointed to the Indiana Court of Appeals. Indiana Governor Joe Kernan made the announcement yesterday.
"I am proud to appoint someone of Terry Crone's caliber to the Court of Appeals," Kernan said. "He is a brilliant judge who understands the practical implications of his decisions. He will have great success on the Court of Appeals."
