Next round of justice interviews begins Tuesday

April 17, 2017

The Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission will select the three finalists this week to fill Justice Robert Rucker’s spot on the Indiana Supreme Court. Second-round interviews with the remaining 11 candidates begin Tuesday.

The interviews will be held Tuesday and Wednesday morning and will be for 30 minutes this round. After the final interview Wednesday, the commission will meet in executive session to pick the three finalists, whose names will be sent to Gov. Eric Holcomb. The governor has 60 days after receiving the candidates’ names from the commission to appoint Rucker’s successor.

Rucker announced earlier this year that he will retire May 12 after 26 years on the appellate bench, nearly 17 of which were on the Supreme Court.
