County accepting applications for retiring judge seat

August 21, 2018
Applicants who want to replace retiring Allen Superior Court Judge Stanley Levine have until Sept. 14 to submit paperwork to a judicial nominating commission.   Levine, 80, a judge in the court’s civil division, announced last week he will retire Dec. 31.   The county’s Judicial Nominating Commission is accepting applications to replace him. The panel will select three finalists, and Gov. Eric Holcomb will choose from among them a successor to Levine.   Applications are available at courts.in.gov/5449.htm and must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14. The nominating commission will meet in early October to interview applicants.   Levine will retire after 20 years on the bench and is the second longest-serving Allen Superior Court judge to announce his retirement at the end of the year. Judge John Surbeck Jr. also will retire Dec. 31, after 30 years on the bench.   mleblanc@jg.net
