Agreement Would End Merit Selection in Indiana County

St. Joseph County, one of two jurisdictions in Indiana that appoints local judges through merit selection commissions, would begin electing Superior Court judges under an agreement reached between House and Senate conferees, according to a news report. The agreement still must be ratified by both full houses and signed by the governor.

The state will continue to choose Supreme and appellate court judges through merit selection.
