The Judicial Nominating Commission has selected the three finalists to succeed retiring Justice Brent Dickson on the Indiana Supreme Court.

They are:

• Judge Steven L. Hostetler, St. Joseph Superior Court, South Bend

• Judge Matthew C. Kincaid, Boone Superior Court 1, Lebanon

The commission announced the finalists around 7 p.m. Friday night. The names will be forwarded to Gov. Mike Pence, who will have 60 days to make his first appointment of a justice. The commission selected the finalists after two days of interviews with 15 semifinalists.

Dickson, the second-longest serving justice in Indiana history, will retire from the court April 29.
