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. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  2. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  3. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  4. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.

  5. ACLU. Way to step up against the police state. I see a lot of things from the ACLU I don't like but this one is a gold star in its column.... instead of fighting it the authorities should apologize and back off.
