Meet Kurt Earnst: Future La Porte County Circuit Court Judge?

Join us on Friday, April 5th at 7PM Central to meet Kurt Earnst, who wants to be our next La Porte County Circuit Court Judge. Is he worthy? Only YOU can determine that. We'll be asking the tough questions, like does he smile? (his picture is very serious. I hope he has a sense of humor or this interview is gonna get awkward quick 🙂 ) He'll be joining us in the studio so I sure hope he appreciates the wit of our host. See below for the email to send your questions to and we hope you join us. You can tune in to Dion's Daily Dose on Facebook, Rumble, YouTube, and X (Formerly Twitter) @DionsDailyDose

We ask all of our guests to send us a bio. This is what we received. "Diversity of Experience, Leadership & Dedication to Public Service Becoming a judge has been a goal of mine since I entered Valparaiso School of Law in the fall of 1993. For the past 27 years, I have practiced law in LaPorte County with the Law Firm of Braje, Nelson & Janes LLP. For the entirety of my practice, I have been engaged in criminal and civil litigation. Furthermore, since 2001, I have been assigned as a Felony Public Defender in LaPorte Circuit Court appearing virtually every Friday morning since that time handling and trying major felony cases. During this time, I have gained an extensive knowledge not only of conducting trials but also the workings of Circuit Court. Also, I have practiced civil litigation in Courts throughout Northwest Indiana as well as criminal trial work in the Federal Courts of the Northern District of Indiana and the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. I have also argued before and participated in litigation and appeals before the Indiana Supreme Court. It is this diversity of experience that I hope to bring to the bench as LaPorte Circuit Court Judge. My upbringing shaped me with a strong desire to give something back to the community. For the past 26 years, it has been my privilege to serve as a volunteer firefighter and first responder with the Long Beach Volunteer Fire Department. Since January of 2023, I have served the department as Fire Chief. I am a past board member and Board President of the Boys and Girls Club of Michigan City and a past Volunteer Judge for the Teen Court Program. Believing in assisting those who have served our Country, I have served as a team member of the LaPorte County Veteran’s Treatment Court since its inception." (End of Bio)
