Mark S. Massa, '89 Named to the Indiana Supreme Court
Mark S. Massa, Class of 1989, executive director of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, has been named a justice of the Indiana Supreme Court. He will take over the vacancy on the court created by Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard’s retirement.
Massa, who has devoted the bulk of his legal career to public service, was one of three finalists for the position, all of whom are Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law graduates. The Hon. Cale Bradford, ’86, of the Indiana Court of Appeals; and Jane Ann Seigel, ’79, executive director of the Indiana Judicial Center, also were finalists.
In addition to his work for the ICJI, Massa also has served as chairman of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, as general counsel to Gov. Mitch Daniels, and as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, among other positions.
Massa will join two other IU McKinney School of Law alumni already serving on the court. Justice Steven David, ’82, was appointed in 2010. Justice Brent E. Dickson, ’68, has served on the court since 1986.
