Ind. Courts - New Chief Justice to be selected May 15? Correct

From a press release from the Courts:

On Tuesday, May 15th the Judicial Nominating Commission will vote to select Indiana’s next Chief Justice. The meeting is open to the public and press. It will be held in Room 319 of the State House from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. EDT.

The Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission recruits candidates for appellate level judicial positions. The Commission also appoints the Indiana Chief Justice. Detailed information on the 7-member Commission, the selection process for Indiana’s Chief Justice and the “Missouri Plan” merit selection system used in Indiana can be found in the current issue of Indiana Court Times magazine here .

As in the past, all current members of the Supreme Court have been invited to share their thoughts with the Commission members during the May 15th meeting. The Commission has asked the Justices to speak about the qualities and attributes important in a Chief Justice.

At 11:30 a.m. the Commission will go into executive session for discussion. Following the executive session, the Commission will convene in a public session to vote on its selection of Indiana’s Chief Justice.
