The seven-member Judicial Nominating Commission will begin second interviews Friday for the seat, which opens in August when Judge Patrick D. Sullivan retires. These six semi-finalists were chosen from an initial 20 applicants.
After these interviews, the commission will select three names to send to Gov. Mitch Daniels, who must then appoint a successor within 60 days of the vacancy.
Each candidate will get 30 minutes, and Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard has asked each candidate to use the first 7 to 10 minutes to describe three ideas for making the court a more effective institution.
The interview schedule is as follows: 9-9:30 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Cynthia J. Ayers 9:30-10 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Cale J. Bradford 10-10:30 a.m. - Cass County deputy prosecutor Randall C. Head 10:45-11:15 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Robyn L. Moberly 11:15-11:45 a.m. - Hamilton Superior Judge William J. Hughes 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. - Marion Superior Judge Kenneth H. Johnson 1:15 p.m. - Closed-door deliberations begin, followed by a public session and vote to name the three nominees.
