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 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. I was wondering about the 6 million put aside for common attorney fees?does that mean that if you are a plaintiff your attorney fees will be partially covered?

  2. My situation was hopeless me and my husband was on the verge of divorce. I was in a awful state and felt that I was not able to cope with life any longer. I found out about this great spell caster drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com and tried him. Well, he did return and now we are doing well again, more than ever before. Thank you so much Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.comi will forever be grateful to you Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com

  3. I expressed my thought in the title, long as it was. I am shocked that there is ever immunity from accountability for ANY Government agency. That appears to violate every principle in the US Constitution, which exists to limit Government power and to ensure Government accountability. I don't know how many cases of legitimate child abuse exist, but in the few cases in which I knew the people involved, in every example an anonymous caller used DCS as their personal weapon to strike at innocent people over trivial disagreements that had no connection with any facts. Given that the system is vulnerable to abuse, and given the extreme harm any action by DCS causes to families, I would assume any degree of failure to comply with the smallest infraction of personal rights would result in mandatory review. Even one day of parent-child separation in the absence of reasonable cause for a felony arrest should result in severe penalties to those involved in the action. It appears to me, that like all bureaucracies, DCS is prone to interpret every case as legitimate. This is not an accusation against DCS. It is a statement about the nature of bureaucracies, and the need for ADDED scrutiny of all bureaucratic actions. Frankly, I question the constitutionality of bureaucracies in general, because their power is delegated, and therefore unaccountable. No Government action can be unaccountable if we want to avoid its eventual degeneration into irrelevance and lawlessness, and the law of the jungle. Our Constitution is the source of all Government power, and it is the contract that legitimizes all Government power. To the extent that its various protections against intrusion are set aside, so is the power afforded by that contract. Eventually overstepping the limits of power eliminates that power, as a law of nature. Even total tyranny eventually crumbles to nothing.

  4. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  5. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!
