Supreme Court Semi Finalists Named

 A nominating committee has pared down a list of 34 applicants to nine semi finalists, vying for the chance to become Indiana’s next Supreme Court Judge.  After two days of preliminary interviews and two hours of executive session deliberation, the committee announced its first round of picks.  There are four women on the list: Marion Superior Court Judge Robyn Moberly, Johnson Superior Court Judge Cynthia Emkes, Indianapolis attorney Ellen Boshkoff and Indiana University lawyer Kiply Drew.  Also on the list are Solicitor General Thomas Fisher, State Senator Brent Steele, Hamilton Superior Court Judge Steven Nation, Indianapolis Lawyer Karl Mulvaney, and Boone Circuit Court Judge Steve David.  Chief Justice Randall Shepard chaired the committee

“I think we all felt that there were a remarkable number of very capable people who were very legitimate prospects and in some ways there was some pain felt about who not to invite back.”

Final interviews will take place July 30th.  Then the nominating committee will select three finalists from which Governor Mitch Daniels will make the final appointment.
