FORT WAYNE – Promising a new energy and vision, a local attorney Thursday announced his candidacy as judge of Allen Superior Court.
James P. Posey, a partner and senior litigator with Beers, Mallers Backs & Salin LLP, will run against current Judge Stanley Levine.
In a statement, Posey said it would be the first time in 25 years the voters of Allen County will have the opportunity to make a choice as to who they will elect to this very important court.
Posey said his 27 years as a civil litigator and his time serving as a judge pro tem for Judge Steve Sims of the Allen Superior Court’s Family Division as strengths for his candidacy.
He’s also been a deputy prosecutor in Marion County, according to his official bio.
A new energy and vision that understands that justice delayed is justice denied, and, therefore, creative ways need to be pursued to help insure cases are moved toward a final resolution in an efficient and effective manner, Posey wrote in a statement as to what he’ll bring to the position.
Posey earned a bachelor of arts degree from Indiana University in 1977 and his law degree from there in 1981.
