Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Anyone interested in becoming the newest magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court’s Southern District of Indiana has until July 14 to apply.

Applications currently are being accepted for the appointment of a full-time magistrate judge to replace Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson, who recently became an Article III judge for the district.

Applicants must be younger than 70, be a member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of the state and have actively practiced law for at least five years, and be competent to perform the office’s duties, along with other requirements. A merit selection panel will review the applications and recommend to the judges of the District Court the five people it believes are the best qualified.

Applications are available on the court’s website under “employment opportunities” or by contacting clerk Laura Briggs. For more information, visit the District Court’s website.

  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.
