All of Indiana's appellate jurists facing retention this year will appear on November's ballot.

Facing a Tuesday deadline to file retention paperwork, the five jurists have told Indiana Lawyer they hope to return to either the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, or Tax Court. Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, Justices Theodore M. Boehm and Brent E. Dickson, Court of Appeals Judge Carr Darden, and Tax Court Judge Thomas G. Fisher are up for retention.

Late last week, the Indiana Secretary of State's Election Division reported that only the chief justice, Justice Boehm, and Judge Darden had filed the necessary paperwork. But everyone confirmed they are planning to return to their respective courts, including Justice Dickson who had said he was weighing the decision.

If retained, all in this group of jurists except Chief Justice Shepard will be unable to fulfill the 10-year retention term as they will hit the mandatory retirement age of 75.

This story will be updatd in today's Indiana Lawyer Daily and the July 23-Aug. 5, 2008, edition of Indiana Lawyer.
