Judge Fisher’s retirement ceremony Friday

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint


A retirement ceremony for Indiana’s first Tax Court judge will happen Friday at the Indiana Statehouse.

Judge Thomas Fisher is retiring Jan. 1 after serving as the state’s only Tax Court judge since the court’s creation in 1986. The Michigan native graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 1965 and practiced law in northern Indiana before being appointed Jasper County prosecutor. He was prosecutor when he was appointed by Gov. Robert Orr to the Tax Court.

The retirement ceremony will include remarks from the governor’s counsel David L. Pippen, Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, and former law clerks. The event will be webcast live and is open to the public. It begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Indiana Supreme Court courtroom on the 3rd floor of the Statehouse.

Judge Fisher’s successor has yet to be named by Gov. Mitch Daniels, who received the three finalists’ names – Joby Jerrells, Hon. Karen Love, and Martha Wentworth - in November.
