[SUPREME] Allen County judicial applicant interviews Thursday

Entry Description

On April 25, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. EDT the Allen Superior Court Judicial Nominating Commission will conduct interviews of the applicants for the Allen Superior Court.  The interviews will take place in Room # 30, Council Committee Room, Citizens Square Building, 200 E. Berry St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802.

A vacancy on the Allen Superior Court will occur on April 26, 2013, when Judge Stephen Sims retires.  Under state law, the Judicial Nominating Commission is required to nominate three candidates for appointment to the Allen Superior Court when a vacancy arises.  The final appointment will be made by Governor Mike Pence. 

The Commission considers that all applicants meet the qualifications of Indiana Code § 33-33-2-10 and are therefore eligible to be interviewed.  The interviews are open to the public and the schedule is as follows:

To respect the interview process and remove distractions for the candidates, the Commission has the following guidelines:

1. Enter and exit the room only between interviews.
2. Set-up tripod and other equipment in between interviews.
3. Refrain from moving about the room during interviews.
4. Artificial lighting such as flashbulbs and frezzi lights shall not be used.
5. No mult box/audio equipment will be provided.  Individual lavalier microphones will not be attached to applicant lapels.  Wired or wireless microphones can be placed on the table in front of the applicant prior to the start of the interview.   
6. Questioning of the applicant during the interview is reserved for the Commission. 
7. At the applicant’s discretion, members of the public or the media may interview him or her before or after the Commission interview outside the interview room.
8. Members of the audience are requested to refrain from all other activities that might distract from the interview process.
