Those interested in becoming Indiana’s next Supreme Court justice have until noon on Jan. 25 to submit their applications. Justice Brent Dickson is retiring from the court April 29.
Qualified applicants will be interviewed by the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission Feb. 17-19, with a likely second round of interviews taking place March 3-4. All interviews will take place in Room 319 at the Statehouse and will be open to the public. The seven-member nominating commission will then select three finalists, with Gov. Mike Pence choosing the next justice within 60 days of receiving the finalists’ names.
This will be Pence’s first appointment to the Indiana Supreme Court.
