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. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
