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:

Tuesday, July 17th:

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. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
