Ind. Courts - Bill to revise selection of Marion County judges dies

The General Assembly adjourned sine die last night and SB 352, the bill to address the section of Marion County Superior Court judges, died without any agreement being reached. See also this post from last night.

Last September the 7th Circuit ruled that the current method of selecting superior court judges in Marion County is unconstitutional.

The 2017 General Assembly will meet before the next election of judges for Marion County's Superior Court. (The ILB is looking into the potential timeline and may have more to add here later.)
