Applications are available for an upcoming judicial position on the Marion Superior Court that will occur when Judge Lisa Borges retires at the end of the year.
The Marion County Judicial Selection Committee is beginning the process of selecting names to send to the governor to fill a Republican vacancy on the bench, the Indiana Supreme Court announced on Tuesday. The vacancy left by Borges will occur when she retires on Dec. 31.
Indiana Supreme Court Justice and committee chairman Mark Massa announced applications are available online for the Marion Superior Court position and must be submitted through the Indiana Courts Portal by Noon EDT Dec. 7.
Created in 2017, the 14-member committee is required to submit to Gov. Eric Holcomb the “three most qualified candidates” for appointment when a vacancy arises.
Committee members plan to meet on Dec. 15 to interview the applicants in the FUSE West conference room on the second floor of the South Tower at Capital Center, 201 N. Illinois St., Indianapolis.
Borges currently heads the Marion Superior Court Criminal Division and presides in Criminal Division 4. She was last retained in 2018 for a term through 2024 with more than 79 percent voting in favor and has served on the bench in Indianapolis since 2007.
