Ind. Courts - "Indiana Supreme Court Facing Another Possible Vacancy"

From WCSI:

The Indiana Supreme Court could soon face its fourth vacancy in two years, and its third in six months. Justice Robert Rucker is scheduled to face the voters in November for Indiana‘s once-every-10-years retention vote. But Chief Justice Brent Dickson says Rucker is considering retirement. Rucker must file paperwork with the secretary of state by July 16 to get his name on the ballot. If he doesn‘t, the Judicial Nominating Commission could choose finalists to replace him by mid-September. That would make four of the five justices appointees of retiring Governor Mitch Daniels.
