Indianapolis Bar Association members the Hon. Robert R. Altice, Jr. of Marion Criminal Division 2 and attorney Patricia Caress McMath, were named by the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission as finalists for the upcoming vacancy on the Court of Appeals of Indiana. Gov. Mitch Daniels will appoint the newest Court of Appeals judge from among the three names submitted to him by the Commission. The Hon. Rudolph R. Pyle, III of Madison Circuit Court 1 is the third finalist.

A position on the Court of Appeals of Indiana will be available when long-time IndyBar member Judge Carr Darden retires this summer. Judge Darden was named to the Court of Appeals by Gov. Evan Bayh in 1994. His retirement creates an opening on the fifteen-member court in the fourth district.

The Indiana Constitution and state statute require the seven-member Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission to fill all appellate-level judicial vacancies. The commission includes three lawyers elected by their peers and three citizen members appointed by the governor. Chief Justice Brent Dickson chairs the commission.

Fourteen candidates applied for the position. All were interviewed in public. Each of the applications, writing samples and letters of recommendation are available for public inspection at the Supreme Court law library, Room 316 of the State House, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.•

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
