Magistrate judge applications due July 14

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Anyone interested in becoming the newest magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court’s Southern District of Indiana has until July 14 to apply.

Applications currently are being accepted for the appointment of a full-time magistrate judge to replace Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson, who recently became an Article III judge for the district.

Applicants must be younger than 70, be a member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of the state and have actively practiced law for at least five years, and be competent to perform the office’s duties, along with other requirements. A merit selection panel will review the applications and recommend to the judges of the District Court the five people it believes are the best qualified.

Applications are available on the court’s website under “employment opportunities” or by contacting clerk Laura Briggs. For more information, visit the District Court’s website.

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
