The man who minds the business of justice for Allen Superior Court will retire in August.
Jerry W. Noble, who has held the post of court executive of Allen Superior Court since 1986, will retire Aug. 22. As court executive, he is the chief administrator of the court. He is responsible for the budget, finance, grants, human resources, caseload allocation and other administrative duties.
Before he became court executive, Noble served the court in other positions in the Family Relations Division beginning in 1971, including 12 years as assistant superintendent of the juvenile detention facility then known as Wood Youth Center.
“Working for the court these many years has been a tremendous honor. I have had the great privilege of working for and with a wonderful group of judges, magistrates and court staff for the improvement of the judicial system here in Allen County,” Noble said in the statement announcing his retirement. “I am profoundly thankful to each one and to God for this opportunity.”
Chief Judge Wendy W. Davis, on behalf of the nine judges of the Allen Superior Court, will organize the search for Noble’s replacement.
