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. My husband financed a car through Wells Fargo In dec 2007 and in Jan 2012 they took him to court to garnish his wages through a company called autovest llc . Do u think the statue of limitations apply from the day last payment was received or from what should have been the completion of the loan

  2. Andrew, you are a whistleblower against an ideologically corrupt system that is also an old boys network ... Including old gals .... You are a huge threat to them. Thieves, liars, miscreants they understand, identify with, coddle. But whistleblowers must go to the stake. Burn well my friend, burn brightly, tyger.

  3. VSB dismissed the reciprocal discipline based on what Indiana did to me. Here we have an attorney actually breaking ethical rules, dishonest behavior, and only getting a reprimand. I advocated that this supreme court stop discriminating against me and others based on disability, and I am SUSPENDED 180 days. Time to take out the checkbook and stop the arrogant cheating to hurt me and retaliate against my good faith efforts to stop the discrimination of this Court. www.andrewstraw.org www.andrewstraw.net

  4. http://www.andrewstraw.org http://www.andrewstraw.net If another state believes by "Clear and convincing evidence" standard that Indiana's discipline was not valid and dismissed it, it is time for Curtis Hill to advise his clients to get out the checkbook. Discrimination time is over.

  5. Congrats Andrew, your street cred just shot up. As for me ... I am now an administrative law judge in Kansas, commissioned by the Governor to enforce due process rights against overreaching government agents. That after being banished for life from the Indiana bar for attempting to do the same as a mere whistleblowing bar applicant. The myth of one lowly peasant with the constitution does not play well in the Hoosier state. As for what our experiences have in common, I have good reason to believe that the same ADA Coordinator who took you out was working my file since 2007, when the former chief justice hired the same, likely to "take out the politically incorrect trash" like me. My own dealings with that powerful bureaucrat and some rather astounding actions .. actions that would make most state courts blush ... actions blessed in full by the Ind.S.Ct ... here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040839/2016Petitionforcert-to-SCOTUS
