  • Artificial lighting shall not be used
  • Media/public may interview the judges before/after MCJSC’s interview outside Room 319 at the judge’s discretion

The 14-member MCJSC was established by the Indiana General Assembly in 2017 and is chaired by Indiana Supreme Court Justice Mark Massa. Indiana law IC 33-33-49-13.1 to 33-33-49-13.7 provides the framework for the duties and membership of the Committee.
