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.

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
