(INDIANAPOLIS) - Gov. Mike Pence will be making his first appointment to Indiana's highest court sometime this spring.

Indiana's Judicial Nominating Commission sent the Republican governor a letter March 11 with the names of three finalists to replace Justice Brent Dickson, who retires from the high court April 29 before he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75.

Pence must name one of those three to the five-member court within 60 days of receiving the letter. Spokesman Matt Lloyd says "the governor has no timeline for making his selection" other than within that timeframe.

The finalists are St. Joseph Superior Judge Steven L. Hostetler, Boone Superior Judge Matthew C. Kincaid and Indianapolis attorney Geoffrey G. Slaughter.
