During second interviews for an opening on the Indiana Court of Appeals, six semi-finalists will discuss their ideas for making the appellate court more efficient.

The seven-member Judicial Nominating Commission will begin second interviews Friday for the seat, which opens in August when Judge Patrick D. Sullivan retires. These six semi-finalists were chosen from an initial 20 applicants.
 
After these interviews, the commission will select three names to send to Gov. Mitch Daniels, who must then appoint a successor within 60 days of the vacancy.

Each candidate will get 30 minutes, and Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard has asked each candidate to use the first 7 to 10 minutes to describe three ideas for making the court a more effective institution.

The interview schedule is as follows: 9-9:30 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Cynthia J. Ayers 9:30-10 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Cale J. Bradford 10-10:30 a.m. - Cass County deputy prosecutor Randall C. Head 10:45-11:15 a.m. - Marion Superior Judge Robyn L. Moberly 11:15-11:45 a.m. - Hamilton Superior Judge William J. Hughes 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. - Marion Superior Judge Kenneth H. Johnson 1:15 p.m. - Closed-door deliberations begin, followed by a public session and vote to name the three nominees.

  1. 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.

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

  3. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  4. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).

  5. The US has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. Far too many people are sentenced for far too many years in prison. Many of the federal prisoners are sentenced for marijuana violations. Marijuana is safer than alcohol.
