Governor Mitch Daniels has selected Indianapolis Bar Association member Martha B. Wentworth as the next Indiana Tax Court judge. Wentworth replaces Judge Thomas G. Fisher, who retired from the court on January 1.

“Martha has a decades deep knowledge of tax law and a strong reputation for fairness and consistency. I know she will fit the Tax Court role superbly,” said Daniels.

Wentworth has an extensive background in tax law. She clerked for Judge Fisher, Indiana’s first tax court judge, from 1990-92 before entering private practice. Since 1998, she has been with Deloitte Tax LLP, serving as a senior tax manager, level 1 firm tax director and level 2 tax director. She also has taught graduate level classes in state and local taxes at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business since 2000.

“I am proud to accept the position as the next Indiana Tax Court Judge from such a qualified panel of applicants, and I am humbled to have been chosen by the governor to try to fill the shoes of my mentor and friend, Judge Thomas Fisher,” Wentworth said. “My goal is to maintain the tax court as a forum where devotion to the rule of law, fairness to all litigants, and professional civility are the benchmarks.”

Wentworth was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Indiana during high school. She earned undergraduate degrees from the former Bennett College of Millbrook, New York and Indiana University and her law degree from Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law.•

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
