After a final round of interviews Thursday, the Judicial Nominating Commission named Cale Bradford, Mark Massa and Jane Seigel as the three finalists to fill an upcoming vacancy on the Indiana Supreme Court.
Bradford is a Court of Appeals Judge from Marion County. Massa is a former legal counsel to Governor Mitch Daniels, and Seigel serves as the Executive Director of the Indiana Judicial Center.
Chief Justice Randall Shepard, whose seat the commission is seeking to fill, announced his retirement late late year. He plans to step down from the high court next month. The governor will have 60 days to select Indiana’s next justice, although the nominee will not necessarily become chief justice. A separate vote will be held for that post after the justice is sworn in.
