Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The remaining nine semi-finalists to be the next Indiana Supreme Court justice will get one last chance Friday to make their case before the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission. After Friday’s interviews, the list will be whittled down to three finalists whose names will be given to the governor to pick the successor to Justice Theodore Boehm, who is stepping down Sept. 30.

The nine are: Baker & Daniels’ partner Ellen E. Boshkoff; Boone Circuit Judge Steven David; Kipley Drew, associate general counsel at Indiana University; Johnson Superior Judge Cynthia S. Emkes; Indiana Solicitor General Thomas M. Fisher; Marion Superior Judge Robyn L. Moberly; Bingham McHale attorney Karl L. Mulvaney; Hamilton Superior Judge Steven R. Nation; and State Sen. Brent E. Steele, R-Bedford.

The semi-finalists will have to answer the following: "What do you consider your finest professional accomplishment or contribution?" and "Name two things that need improving in the Indiana court system that a justice might help solve."

Indiana Lawyer will be there and we’ll be updating our blog, First Impressions, throughout the day with information from the interviews. We’ll also have video from Friday's interviews of the three chosen finalists.  

Check back throughout the day Friday for updates, including the names of the three finalists.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
