IU McKinney Law Grad is Finalist for Indiana Supreme Court
The Hon. Steven R. Nation, '75, of Hamilton Superior Court, is one of three finalists for the Indiana Supreme Court. Judge Nation has a diverse legal background, having worked as a civil trial attorney, a prosecutor, and a trial judge.
Also under consideration for the opening on the Indiana Supreme Court are Tippecanoe Superior Judge Loretta Rush, and Taft Stettinius & Hollister partner Geoffrey Slaughter.
This most recent vacancy occurred when Professor Frank Sullivan, Jr., left the Indiana Supreme Court to join the IU McKinney Law faculty. Governor Mitch Daniels will make the final decision. Three other alumni already serve on the court. Justice Mark Massa, ’89, was appointed earlier this year. Justice Steven David, ’82, was appointed in 2010. Chief Justice Brent E. Dickson, ’68, has served on the court since 1986.
