Justice retiring after 14 years on Indiana high court

Indiana Supreme Court Justice Theodore Boehm will step down this fall after 14 years on the bench.

The court announced Tuesday that the 71-year-old Boehm would retire Sept. 30. He was appointed to the court in 1996 by then-Gov.
Evan Bayh.

During his tenure, Boehm wrote 466 majority opinions and 77 dissenting opinions.

A graduate of Brown University and Harvard Law School, he was a law clerk to U.S. Chief Justice Earl Warren and is a former
managing partner of the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels.

Boehm helped lead the drive to post video of the Supreme Court's oral arguments online.

A nominating commission led by Indiana Chief Justice Randall Shepard will give the names of three finalists to Gov. Mitch
Daniels, who will make the final selection.
