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. 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...
