Ind. Decisions - More on: Supreme Court's call for amicus briefs in sentencing case answered

Re the ILB entry from earlier today, a reader writes to ask:

In your posting regarding the call for Amicus briefs on the issue of using scored instruments for sentencing it showed that the Indiana Judicial Center requested leave to file an Amicus brief. Does anyone wonder or question whether an agency of the Supreme Court should appear as Amicus in a Supreme Court case?
And how will they come up with a position? Any thoughts?
