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. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
