Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

Anyone interested in being the next Indiana Tax Court judge has just about a month to apply for that position.

The Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission is accepting applications until Sept. 20 for the post, which will become vacant at year’s end once Judge Thomas G. Fisher steps down. He is the first and only appellate tax judge since the court’s creation in 1986, and the 70-year-old jurist announced earlier this month his plan to retire Jan. 1 before he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75.

To fill that seat, the seven-member commission will conduct initial interviews on Sept. 27 and determine who should be brought back for second interviews Oct. 27. Commission members will forward three finalists’ names on to Gov. Mitch Daniels, who makes the final selection.

A candidate must be an Indiana resident and a Hoosier attorney in good standing for at least five years. All applications are due by 4:30 p.m. Sept. 20, according to the application form. The annual salary for Tax Court judge is $150,103, and those interested in applying can contact commission counsel Adrienne Meiring at ameiring@courts.state.in.us or (317) 232-4706. More information and the application itself can be found online at the state court’s website.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
