The newest Indiana Court of Appeals judge will formally join the court Friday. Judge Elaine Brown's robing ceremony will be in the courtroom of the Indiana Supreme Court. Judge Brown's first day on the court was May 5.

Chief Judge John Baker will preside over the ceremony, and Gov. Mitch Daniels will join Judge Brown's family, colleagues, and special guests to administer the oath of office.

Judge Brown was named to the Indiana Court of Appeals by Gov. Daniels earlier this year to replace Judge John T. Sharpnack, who began serving as a senior judge May 5. Judge Brown, a graduate of Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington, served as a trial court judge in Dubois Superior Court from 1987 to 1998 and again from 2005 until her appointment to the Court of Appeals. She worked in private practice in the years between her times on the bench.

Judge Brown joins Judges Nancy H. Vaidik and Margret G. Robb to complete the court's Fifth District, which draws a judge from each of the court's first three geographical districts. She will serve on the bench as the Fifth District's judge from the southern part of the state, and will face a retention vote during the first statewide general election after she has served for two full years.

  2. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  3. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  4. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  5. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.
