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. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
