What is a senior judge and what do they do? Who are the Court of Appeals senior judges?

0

Senior judges are former judges who work part-time at Indiana courts. Former judges of any age apply to the Judicial Nominating Commission to be certified as senior judges. Once approved, a senior judge is assigned to work at a court based on its need for assistance. (Learn about the Senior Judge program.) In 1998, the Indiana statute providing for senior judges at the trial court level was amended to allow senior judges to work at the Court of Appeals. Senior judges at the Court of Appeals have the same powers and responsibilities of current judges. They serve on three-judge panels and the Court’s motions panel. Four senior judges currently serve on the Court of Appeals and all are former judges of the Court: Hon. Betty Barteau, Hon. William Garrard, Hon. Patrick D. Sullivan, and Hon. John T. Sharpnack.
