Ind. Courts - Information on judicial retention - where is the birth date?
The ILB has been looking at the Court's judicial retention site for 2014 and notices that it does not list the birth dates of the judges and justices up for retention in November.
As I posted in 2010 and in 2012 in commenting on the Court's previous retention websites:
I would have liked to see: (1) The age of each judge. By law, an appellate judge must retire at age 75. Thus, whether a judge will be able to finish his/her term is a fact voters should be able to take into consideration.Again this year, that information has not been made available for the voters on the retention website.
(Notably, this year's Supreme Court Annual Report does list, for the first time, the birth dates of the five current justices. See pp 4 and 5.)
