Panel to select next Indiana Supreme Court leader

– The Indiana Supreme Court is about to get its second new leader since 2012.

The Judicial Nominating Commission will meet Wednesday to interview Justices Loretta Rush, Mark Massa, Steven David and Robert Rucker before selecting a new chief justice to succeed Brent Dickson.

Dickson took over the court’s leadership after longtime Chief Justice Randall Shepard retired in 2012. Dickson announced in June that he would step down as chief justice but remain an associate justice.

Two years ago, the justices all recommended Dickson be named chief justice and the commission followed their recommendation.

The nominating commission will hear from the justices in public and then meet privately to select the next chief justice for a five-year term.
