Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Applications are open for qualified Allen County attorneys interested in serving as a judge in Superior Court, Civil Division.

Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David chairs the Allen County Judicial Nominating Committee and announced in a statement Tuesday that the commission will consider applicants to fill a vacancy that will be created with the retirement of Judge Steven Sims from his position in the Family Relations Division.

Judge Daniel Heath will transfer to the Family Relations Division, replacing Sims as allowed under IC 33-33-2-39, which governs Allen County courts. Heath’s move will create the vacancy in Allen Superior Court, Civil Division, which will be filled by the commission.

Applications are available on the Supreme Court’s website and at the Allen County Clerk’s Office, 715 S.  Calhoun St., Room 200A, Fort Wayne, IN, 46802. Applications must be turned in to the clerk by 4:30 p.m. on April 9. The Allen Judicial Nominating Commission will meet at 9 a.m. on April 25 and 26 to interview applicants at a location to be announced later.

The commission will select the three most highly qualified candidates from which Gov. Mike Pence will make an appointment.

“I encourage those interested in a public service career to submit their names to the commission,” David said. “We recognize the commission will have a tough task with many qualified Allen County attorneys, but we are looking forward to meeting with the applicants and providing the governor with an excellent list of candidates.”

The seven-member commission was established by the Indiana General Assembly in 1983 and includes three members admitted to the bar and selected by the county’s lawyers and three non-lawyer members chosen by the governor. The panel is chaired by a justice or Court of Appeals judge appointed by the chief justice. David was recently appointed chairman by Chief Justice Brent Dickson.

  1. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
