Judge Jeffrey Thode has announced his plan to seek re-election in 2018 to his fifth term on the bench of Porter Superior Court 6.

Porter Superior Court 6 is a court of general jurisdiction handling both civil and criminal cases. Since 1995, Thode has “presided over more than 240,000 cases and has year to year consistently operated under budget resulting in thousands of dollars in savings to Porter County residents,” according to a statement released on Monday.

In 2016, at the annual meeting of the Judicial Conference of Indiana, Thode was recognized for his 24 years of outstanding service to the cause of justice as a Judicial Officer of the State of Indiana. He formerly chaired the Indiana Judicial Center Court Management Committee and currently sits on the Indiana Office of Court Services’ Special Courts Committee.

Thode is also a past president of the Porter County Bar Association and former Porter County deputy prosecuting attorney and in 1994 was appointed to serve as Porter County Probate Commissioner.

Thode has been married to his wife Susan for 28 years and they have two adult children.
