Committee To Begin Interviewing For Brent Dickson’s Seat

The U.S. Supreme Court isn’t the only one dealing with an open spot on the bench. A committee begins interviewing candidates, Wednesday, to recommend three finalists to Governor Mike Pence for a seat being vacated by retiring Indiana Supreme Court Justice Brent Dickson.

The Judicial Nominating Commission will interview 30 people by Friday, including state Solicitor General Thomas Fisher. A second round of interviews is scheduled for the beginning of March. The interviews are open to the public and will take place at the Indiana State House. After deliberating in private, the commission will vote in public to select three finalists before the governor makes his final decision. Dickson is retiring on April 29th.
