By Tyler D. Helmond, Voyles Zahn & Paul
Hon. Terry A. Crone

Indiana Court of Appeals

He is a graduate of DePauw University and the University of Notre Dame Law School. He practiced law for nine years before taking the bench in St. Joseph County – first as magistrate and later as judge of the St. Joseph Circuit Court. He was appointed to the Indiana Court of Appeals in 2004. He is the Honorable Terry A. Crone, and he has been served with interrogatories.

Q: Are you or are any of your colleagues reading briefs on iPads?

A: Yes, it allows us to stay current while traveling or working from home.



Q: When you are first assigned a new case, in what order do you read the briefs?

A: I read the Appellant’s brief followed by the Appellee’s brief and then the reply brief.



Q: Who is the best golfer on the Indiana appellate bench?

A: Steve David. Sort of like being All-State from Rhode Island.



Q: What golf course have you not played that is first on your golfing bucket list?

A: Augusta National.



Q: You’re a DePauw graduate. Do you miss the days of winning the Monon Bell?

A: Almost as much as you IU grads miss the Rose Bowl.

Q: What is your favorite part about traveling oral arguments?

A: The opportunity to educate people about how our legal system really works. It is very distressing to see how little most people know about our system of justice.



Q: You spent many years as a trial court judge. What do you see these days that drives you crazy about the way trial court proceedings are conducted?

A: I have tremendous respect for the work done by our trial judges. I am particularly impressed with how they are using modern technology to improve the delivery of judicial services to the public.



Q: If you could choose one book as required reading for an appellate judge, what would it be?

A: “Devil in the Grove” by Gilbert King. I think it is important to remember the abuses that were occurring not so long ago when we consider why we have some of the procedural safeguards we do and how they ought to be adapted to an ever changing society.•

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
