Ryan Streeter, of Indianapolis, has been appointed to the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission to serve the remaining months of a term following the resignation of member Fred McCashland.

Gov. Mitch Daniels appointed Streeter on July 1 to serve out McCashland’s term that ends Dec. 31, according to a letter released by the Indiana Supreme Court on Friday.

The nominating commission vets and recommends to the governor candidates for Court of Appeals judges and Indiana Supreme Court justices.

Also Friday, the Supreme Court announced the commission’s schedule for interviews of Indiana Supreme court candidates that will take place July 17 - 18. Twenty-two attorneys and judges applied to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice Frank Sullivan, who will step down this summer.

The 20-minute interviews, which will take place in Room 319 at the Statehouse, are open to the public:

The commission will vote on and name semi-finalists in public after meeting in executive session. On Aug. 8 - 9, the commission will interview the semi-finalists, after which the members will select and submit three names to Daniels, who will have 60 days to choose a new justice.

The applications, along with writing samples, transcripts and letters of recommendation, are available for review at the Indiana Supreme Court Law Library in room 316 of the Statehouse. Redacted versions of the applications will be made available online sometime during the week of July 9, according to a Supreme Court news release.

In the spring, the commission conducted interviews for a future vacancy on the Indiana Court of Appeals, submitting to Daniels the names of Judges Robert Altice Jr. and Rudolph Pyle III, and attorney Patricia McMath as candidates to replace retiring appeals court Judge Carr Darden. Daniels has 60 days from the June 11 date of the commission’s formal letter to choose a successor to Darden, who is retiring this month.

The commission is composed of seven members: three non-attorneys and three attorneys, one from each of the three Court of Appeals districts, and the chief justice, who serves as ex officio chairman.
In addition to Streeter, non-attorney members are Molly Kitchell of Zionsville and Jean Northenor of Warsaw. Attorney members are James O. McDonald of Terre Haute, John D. Ulmer of Goshen and William E. Winningham of Indianapolis.

  1. Hello currently just withdrew from laporte county drug court and now I have lost the woman I love which also was in drugcourt and was put in jail without a,lawyer presentfor her own safety according to the judge and they told her she could have a hearing in two weeks and now going on 30days and still in jail no court date and her public defender talks like he,s bout to just sell her up the river.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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)
