The Chief Justice of Indiana, Randall T. Shepard will deliver the 2011 State of the Judiciary to a joint session of the Indiana General Assembly Wednesday, January 12th at 2:30 p.m. EST.  “Burdened but Unbowed,” will be webcast live at courts.in.gov.  6 News 24/7, the digital news channel from WRTV (6.2 on most local cable systems) will also broadcast the address live.  Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations (radio and television) will have a half-hour special devoted to the State of the Judiciary airing January 14th-20th (see schedule below). 

The address will focus on how the courts diagnose problems and identify opportunities to tackle challenging issues that affect the judicial branch.  Chief Justice Shepard will concentrate on four issues—the mortgage foreclosure crisis, criminal sentencing, improved technology, and plain English civil jury instructions. 

The address is required by the Indiana Constitution.  Indiana lawmakers must receive an update on the “condition of the courts” according to Article 7, Section 3.  The 2011 address will be Chief Justice Shepard’s twenty-fourth State of the Judiciary.
