Second COA interviews scheduled for Friday

Keywords Courts / neglect

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.
