In one of his last official acts as governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels appointed judges to the Vanderburgh and Marion Superior courts. When the two judges will assume their new duties has not been determined.

Gary Miller will replace Judge Robyn Moberly on the Marion Superior Court bench. Moberly was named a bankruptcy judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana in October and was sworn in Nov. 1.

Miller has experience in the Marion Superior Court, serving 18 years as judge in the criminal and civil divisions. He is a founding partner of the general law practice of Miller Myer LLP and currently sits as senior judge in Putnam, Boone, Johnson and Shelby counties.

He graduated from Indiana University in 1977 and earned his law degree from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 1980.

Leslie Curtis Shively has been appointed judge of the Vanderburgh Superior Court. He replaces Judge David Kiely, who was elected in November to replace retiring Judge Carl Heldt at the Vanderburgh Circuit Court.

This is Shively’s first judicial appointment. He has been a practicing attorney for over 32 years, currently serving as the principal attorney at Shively & Associates. Also, for the past 12 years he has acted as a hearing officer in attorney disciplinary proceedings. From 2001 to 2011, he served as a member of the Indiana State Board of Law Examiners and was president of the board for two years.

He holds both an undergraduate degree and master’s degree from Indiana University. He earned his law degree from I.U. McKinney School of Law in 1980.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
