Panel recommends 3 Indiana Supreme Court finalists

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Judicial Nominating Commission has named three finalists it will recommend to Gov. Mike Pence for an upcoming vacancy on the Indiana Supreme Court.

The seven-member commission on Friday selected St. Joseph Superior Judge Steven L. Hostetler, Boone Superior Judge Matthew C. Kincaid and attorney Geoffrey G. Slaughter.

One of the three will replace retiring Justice Brent Dickson. Pence will have 60 days to select one of the three for his first appointment to the state’s highest court.

Dickson will step down April 29 before reaching the court’s mandatory retirement age of 75. His departure will mean four of the court’s five justices will have been appointed since 2010.

Twenty-nine people applied for the vacancy.
