Ind. Courts - Still more on: The Indiana Appellate Jurists Facing Their First Retention Vote in November

Reiterating this ILB post from July 8th, the July 15th filing deadline has now passed and all four jurists eligible to face their first retention vote have filed to be placed on the 2014 general election ballot to gain voters' approval for a 10-year term.

The Indiana Courts has now made available its Retention Website for 2014. Interestingly, as I don't recall this from previous times, ALL the opinions in which the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals jurists participated are listed, not just the ones in which they wrote an opinion, but you can do a sort to provide just their majority opinions.

In the case of the Tax Court, Judge Wentworth decides alone. The Tax Court list is useful because you can sort the columns by date, type, and where appealed from.

Also useful is the table the ILB created for this May 20th post:

Indiana Appellate Jurists Facing First Retention Vote
Judge or Justice Appointed by Governor Date of oath Days served before retention vote
Wentworth 12/22/10 1/17/11 1,417
Massa 3/23/12 4/2/12 960
Pyle 8/7/12 8/27/12 823
Rush 9/14/12 11/7/12 785
