It took a moment for this to hit the news, but apparently Superior Court Judge Stanley Levine made some bad jokes at the ceremony honoring Jerry Noble the other day, and has had to apologize for it. Nothing of legal note, here, just a note of local interest. Read more from Rebecca Green at J-G.
Really should have mentioned this in the Monday Roundup, but long-time Allen County Superior Court executive Jerry Noble was honored with a Sagamore of the Wabash award last week. He served the court for over four decades.
Sagamore awards are granted to those individuals who have contributed greatly to the state. It is the highest honor bestowed by the Governor.
Not a whole lot to talk about today, so head on over to the Indiana Law Blog for this nice commentary on the process for selecting the next Chief Justice of Indiana’s Supreme Court.
In short, the Chief Justice is selected by a committee of seven, made up of the current Chief Justice, three attorneys voted on by the state’s lawyers, and three non-attorneys selected by the Governor.
