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. "pedigree"? I never knew that in order to become a successful or, for that matter, a talented attorney, one needs to have come from good stock. What should raise eyebrows even more than the starting associates' pay at this firm (and ones like it) is the belief systems they subscribe to re who is and isn't "fit" to practice law with them. Incredible the arrogance that exists throughout the practice of law in this country, especially at firms like this one.

  2. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?

  3. That comment on this e-site, which reports on every building, courtroom or even insignificant social movement by beltway sycophants as being named to honor the yet-quite-alive former chief judge, is truly laughable!

  4. Is this a social parallel to the Mosby prosecutions in Baltimore? Progressive ideology ever seeks Pilgrims to burn at the stake. (I should know.)

  5. The Conour embarrassment is an example of why it would be a good idea to NOT name public buildings or to erect monuments to "worthy" people until AFTER they have been dead three years, at least. And we also need to stop naming federal buildings and roads after a worthless politician whose only achievement was getting elected multiple times (like a certain Congressman after whom we renamed the largest post office in the state). Also, why have we renamed BOTH the Center Township government center AND the new bus terminal/bum hangout after Julia Carson?
