Gov. Mitch Daniels will choose the state's next Indiana Supreme Court justice from among two attorneys and one judge already serving state government.

The Judicial Nominating Commission on Feb. 23 chose Indiana Appeals Court Judge Cale Bradford, Indiana Criminal Justice Institute Executive Director Mark Massa and Indiana Judicial Center Executive Director Jane Seigel as finalists for the post.

Gov. Mitch Daniels will choose the next Indiana Supreme Court justice from among these three attorneys.

Daniels has 60 days to make a selection.

He will choose a replacement for Chief Justice Randall Shepard, who is stepping retiring, next month after 25 years on the state's high court.

The nominating commission received applications from 15 attorneys who wanted the post. The commission narrowed the list to seven semifinalists after a first round of interviews and then to the three finalists after second interviews on Thursday.

Daniels' pick will serve as one of the state's five justices. The nominating commission will then choose a new chief justice.

The commission - chaired by Shepard - includes three attorney members who are elected by other attorneys across the state and three non-attorney members who are appointed by the governor.

Abbreviated versions of each candidate's applications are available online.
