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. I was wondering about the 6 million put aside for common attorney fees?does that mean that if you are a plaintiff your attorney fees will be partially covered?

  2. My situation was hopeless me and my husband was on the verge of divorce. I was in a awful state and felt that I was not able to cope with life any longer. I found out about this great spell caster drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com and tried him. Well, he did return and now we are doing well again, more than ever before. Thank you so much Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.comi will forever be grateful to you Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com

  3. I expressed my thought in the title, long as it was. I am shocked that there is ever immunity from accountability for ANY Government agency. That appears to violate every principle in the US Constitution, which exists to limit Government power and to ensure Government accountability. I don't know how many cases of legitimate child abuse exist, but in the few cases in which I knew the people involved, in every example an anonymous caller used DCS as their personal weapon to strike at innocent people over trivial disagreements that had no connection with any facts. Given that the system is vulnerable to abuse, and given the extreme harm any action by DCS causes to families, I would assume any degree of failure to comply with the smallest infraction of personal rights would result in mandatory review. Even one day of parent-child separation in the absence of reasonable cause for a felony arrest should result in severe penalties to those involved in the action. It appears to me, that like all bureaucracies, DCS is prone to interpret every case as legitimate. This is not an accusation against DCS. It is a statement about the nature of bureaucracies, and the need for ADDED scrutiny of all bureaucratic actions. Frankly, I question the constitutionality of bureaucracies in general, because their power is delegated, and therefore unaccountable. No Government action can be unaccountable if we want to avoid its eventual degeneration into irrelevance and lawlessness, and the law of the jungle. Our Constitution is the source of all Government power, and it is the contract that legitimizes all Government power. To the extent that its various protections against intrusion are set aside, so is the power afforded by that contract. Eventually overstepping the limits of power eliminates that power, as a law of nature. Even total tyranny eventually crumbles to nothing.

  4. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  5. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!
