Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

If the results of the Indiana State Bar Association’s 2010 Judicial Retention Poll are any indicator of next month’s election, then the five Indiana Court of Appeals judges up for a vote will be easily retained.

Judges L. Mark Bailey, Cale J. Bradford, Elaine B. Brown, Melissa S. May, and Margret G. Robb received 75 percent or more “yes” votes from 1,078 ISBA members. Judge Bailey received 86.7 percent “yes” votes; Judge Bradford received 83.2 percent; Judge Brown received 74.9 percent; Judge May received 82.7 percent, and Judge Robb received 83.1 percent.

The ISBA’s Improvements in the Judicial System Committee e-mailed the poll to its members in three installments. The polls were sent out Sept. 17, Sept. 24, and Oct. 1. This is the second time members were polled electronically.

Indiana Lawyer posed several questions to the judges up for retention. Read those answers here.

  2. William Hartley prosecutor of Wabash county constantly violates people rights. Withholds statement's, is bias towards certain people. His actions have ruined lives and families. In this county you question him or go out of town for a lawyer,he finds a way to make things worse for you. Unfair,biased and crooked.

  3. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
