Upcoming Elections: Appellate Court Retention

Along with everything else, Hoosiers get to decide whether the appellate court judges should be kept or sent back to civilian life. Three Supreme Court Justices, one Court of Appeals judge, and the Tax Court judge are up for retention.

This year we have a web page Judicial Retention in Indiana on the subject. You get a thumbnail biography and links to their cases.

All I am going to say here is that no appellate court judge has lost their job on a retention vote.
