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. 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.

  2. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  3. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.

  4. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  5. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)
