Indiana's retired Chief Justice Randall Shepard gives the 2011 State of the Judiciary speak at the statehouse.

Randall Shepard will not have to wait long for his first post-Supreme Court judicial assignment. The now-former chief justice announced two weeks ago he would take “senior judge” status with the Indiana Court of Appeals.

He is one of five retired appellate judges who pitch in on about  6 percent of Court of Appeals cases to relieve some of the caseload pressure on the court. The appeals court says Shepard will hear his first case May 4, when the court makes one of its periodic field trips away from the statehouse, at Franklin High School. It has not been determined which case it will be.

The Court of Appeals has 15 judges, with each case heard by a three-judge panel.
