On June 2, 1975, he was appointed to the Michigan Supreme Court by Governor Bill Milliken to serve the final year of a vacancy caused by the death of Justice Thomas M. Kavanaugh. After his appointment, Lindemer spent the next 10 years as general counsel and senior vice president of Consumers Power Co. out of Jackson, and re-joined Foster Swift in 1986 as general counsel. Lindemer enjoyed a distinguished political and legal career, from chairman of the Michigan Republican Party to being a candidate for Michigan attorney general. He served in the U.S. Air Force during World War II, prior to earning his law degree at the University of Michigan Law School.
