An Indianapolis law firm partner who has led three state agencies is the new administrator for Marion County courts.

On Monday, the four-judge executive committee chose Glenn R. Lawrence to fill the position, which has been vacant since the former administrator Ron Miller resigned in late March. Since then, Senior Judge Richard Good has been filling in as interim administrator.

The committee offered Lawrence the $93,500-salary job Monday afternoon, according to presiding Superior Judge Gerald Zore. Judges had received about 20 applications and interviewed five of those, he said.

Lawrence starts June 25 and will oversee a $55 million budget and 21-person office staff.

Currently a partner with Coleman Graham & Stevenson, Lawrence has previously served in state government positions that include executive director of the Indiana Gaming Commission, commissioner of the Indiana Department of Administration, and chair of the Indiana Alcoholic Beverage Commission, among other state positions. He has also served in the commerce and correction departments and as general counsel for various agencies, as well as working as the director of public works for Lawrence.

"Glenn knows how to manage people and has vast experience as a practicing attorney and government administrator," Judge Zore said in a news release. "His administrative experience in both state and local government will be a great asset for the Court."

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
