Anyone interested in becoming the newest magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court’s Southern District of Indiana has until July 14 to apply.
Applications currently are being accepted for the appointment of a full-time magistrate judge to replace Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson, who recently became an Article III judge for the district.
Applicants must be younger than 70, be a member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of the state and have actively practiced law for at least five years, and be competent to perform the office’s duties, along with other requirements. A merit selection panel will review the applications and recommend to the judges of the District Court the five people it believes are the best qualified.
Applications are available on the court’s website under “employment opportunities” or by contacting clerk Laura Briggs. For more information, visit the District Court’s website.
