Another Veteran Justice Leaving Ind. Supreme Court
Another longtime member of the Indiana Supreme Court is stepping down.
Justice Frank Sullivan Jr. announced Monday that he will be leaving the court after 19 years to join the faculty at Indiana University's law school in Indianapolis. Sullivan says he will remain on the court until near the start of the law school's fall semester.
Sullivan's departure follows the retirement last month of Chief Justice Randall Shepard after 25 years leading the state's top court.
Sullivan was state budget director under Democratic Gov. Evan Bayh before Bayh appointed him to the five-member court in 1993. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels will pick Sullivan's replacement from candidates selected by the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission.
