Governor names new Tax Court judge

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Gov. Mitch Daniels has chosen attorney Martha Wentworth as the state’s second-ever judge on the Indiana Tax Court.

The governor announced his decision just after 3 p.m., sending a news release rather than following the practice of holding a news conference as he did for his Court of Appeals and Supreme Court appointments.

He chose Wentworth over the two other finalists, Bloomington attorney Joby Jerrells and Hendricks Superior 3 Judge Karen Love.

Admitted in 1990, Wentworth is tax director at the multistate group Deloitte Tax LLP and had previously served in roles that included clerking for the Tax Court between 1990 and 1992. The Indiana University Maurer School of Law graduate has also taught graduate-level classes in state and local taxes at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business since 2000.

Wentworth succeeds retiring Tax Judge Thomas G. Fisher, who was the state’s first appellate tax judge appointed in 1986. He has planned his retirement to begin as soon as this appointment was announced.
