Marion County Judicial Selection Committee Adds Member
Ice Miller LLP Partner Lacy Johnson has been appointed to serve on Indiana’s Marion County Judicial Selection Committee. The 14-member committee was established by House Enrolled Act 1036-2017. Upon a vacancy of the Marion Superior Court, the committee recommends three nominees to the governor. Within 60 days, the governor must appoint one of the nominees as judge to fill the vacancy. The chairperson makes an appointment if the governor does not do so within 60 days. The committee also evaluates a judge’s qualifications at the end of his or her term and issues a recommendation to voters about whether he or she should continue to hold judicial office.
Lacy’s practice focuses on public affairs. Before joining Ice Miller, he was an attorney for Government Relations Services at Sagamore-Bainbridge Inc., director of security for the Indiana State Lottery and held a number of senior leadership roles within the Indiana State Police. He is a former Lt. Commander of the United States Naval Intelligence Reserves.
