The Indianapolis Bar Association (“IndyBar”) is reviewing Judge Young’s decision holding unconstitutional Marion County’s current system for selecting judges. For more than twenty years, the IndyBar has taken an active interest in the best methods of selecting judges in Marion County. Through its Attorneys for an Independent Bench (AIB) Committee, the IndyBar intends to offer its assistance in crafting a remedy to address the Judge’s decision. Marion County has been well served by its excellent judges over the years, and inclusive engagement of all interested parties in creating a new judicial selection method will ensure that continues.

The Indianapolis Bar Association is a voluntary membership organization comprised of more than 4,900 attorneys, judges, paralegals and law students. Founded in 1878, the association's mission is to serve its members, promote justice and enhance the legal profession. The association is governed by a 32 member Board of Directors.
