Fifteen people have applied to be the next Indiana Supreme Court justice, the high court announced Friday. They are vying to replace Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, who will leave the bench March 4.

Of those 15 applicants, six are currently judges. The applicants come from all over the state, with the majority based in central Indiana. Two of the applicants – Marion Superior Judge Robyn Moberly and Indianapolis attorney Karl Mulvaney – were finalists for the vacancy to fill Justice Theodore Boehm’s spot. Steven David, a Boone Circuit judge, was selected by the governor.

The applicants are:
 
•    Hon. Robert R. Altice, Jr., Marion Superior Court, Criminal Division 2
•    Hon. Cynthia J. Ayers, Marion Superior Court, Civil Division 4
•    Hon. Cale J. Bradford, Indiana Court of Appeals
•    Hon. Maria D. Granger, Floyd Superior Court 3
•    Mr. Mark S. Massa, Indianapolis
•    Ms. Patricia C. McMath, Indianapolis
•    Hon. Robyn L. Moberly, Marion Superior Court, Civil Division 5
•    Mr. Karl L. Mulvaney, Indianapolis
•    Mr. Rory O’Bryan, Indianapolis
•    Hon. Michael N. Pagano, Lake Superior Court, County Division 3
•    Ms. Mary K. Reeder, Indianapolis
•    Mr. Steven R. Schultz, Columbus
•    Ms. Jane A. Seigel, Indianapolis
•    Mr. Les C. Shively, Evansville
•    Ms. Rebecca A. Trent, West Lafayette

The Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission will conduct first-round interviews Feb. 8 and 9 in Room 319 of the Statehouse. The commission will narrow down the field and interview the semi-finalists Feb. 22 and then send three names to the governor for selection. After receiving the finalists’ names, Gov. Mitch Daniels has 60 days to select the next justice.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
