Daniels says he has heard good things about each of the three Supreme Court finalists.

The three finalists for the Indiana Supreme Court have gone through two rounds of vetting by the Judicial Nominating Commission. Next up is an interview with Governor Mitch Daniels.

Daniels says he is looking forward to discussing their backgrounds and learning more about each one. He says, in the end, he will make his choice based on that and not necessarily what others tell him about the three.

“None of these three got to this point without having very, very strong credentials and they’ll all have a lot of admierers, all of them will,” Daniels says.

Daniels has until early October to make a decision. The three up for the justice post are Indianapolis attorney Geoffrey Slaughter, Hamilton County Judge Steven Nation and Tippecanoe County Judge Loretta Rush.

The next justice will replace Frank Sullivan, who retired at the end of July.
