[SUPREME] Applications Available for Judicial Position on the Court of Appeals of Indiana
Start Date: 4/5/2012
End Date: 4/5/2012
Entry Description
A position on the Court of Appeals of Indiana will be available when Judge Carr Darden retires this summer. Judge Darden was named to the Court of Appeals by Governor Evan Bayh in 1994. His retirement creates an opening on the fifteen-member court. Applications for the position are available online at Applications are due May 9, 2012.

The seven members of the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission will search for Judge Darden’s replacement. The Commission includes three lawyers elected by their peers and three citizen-members appointed by the Governor. Acting Chief Justice Dickson will chair the Commission.

The Commission will conduct initial public interviews of qualified candidates in Indianapolis on May 15-17, 2012 followed by second interviews on June 4-5, 2012. After the public interviews and Commission deliberations in an executive session, the Commission will publicly vote to send the three most qualified names to Governor Mitch Daniels. The Governor makes the appointment.

Those interested in applying to be the state’s next Court of Appeals Judge may contact Counsel for the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission, Adrienne Meiring, at 317-232-4706. A candidate must be an Indiana resident who resides in the Court of Appeals Second District (information on the districts can be found here Candidates must have been a member of the Indiana bar for ten years or an Indiana judge for five years. The annual salary and allowances for a Court of Appeals Judge is $152,015. The Court of Appeals operates in three-judge panels which rotate three times a year. Together, the judges of the Court of Appeals write approximately 2,500 opinions each year.

On April 2, 2012 Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan, Jr. announced his retirement from the Supreme Court. His exact retirement date has not been set, but will take place during the summer. The Commission has not determined a timeline for the search to find Sullivan’s successor. The effort to find the 108th Justice of the Supreme Court will take place separately from the Commission’s consideration of the Court of Appeals vacancy.
