The application deadline for three Marion County judicial vacancies has been extended to June 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indiana Supreme Court announced Wednesday.
The Marion County Judicial Selection Committee announced it would extend the deadline for applications to fill vacancies created by the end-of-year retirement of judges Barbara Crawford of Criminal Division 1, David Dreyer of Civil Division 10 and Marilyn Moores of the Juvenile Division. The judges would have been up for retention this year.
The announcement extends the original March 30 deadline announced last month. Applicant interviews that had been scheduled for May 18, 19, and 20 will be rescheduled to late August or early September, according to the high court.
Applicants for the judicial vacancies will be interviewed and evaluated by the selection committee, which will recommend three finalists for each vacancy to Gov. Eric Holcomb. The governor will make appointments from among those finalists to fill the vacancies.
Earlier this month, the selection committee recommended retention of all 13 Indianapolis judges on the November general election ballot.
