James Barta is the new solicitor general of Indiana, named by AG Todd Rokita



Indianapolis, Indiana – The choice of James Barta to serve as the state’s second-ever solicitor general was made public on Monday by the office of Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita.

A solicitor general is in charge of managing legal matters concerning constitutional concerns and other matters “of vital interest to the state government,” according to a press statement from Rokita’s office. In addition to lower federal courts and state courts, Barta has argued several matters before the US Supreme Court.

“After a national search, we selected a Hoosier with top credentials and national experience to fill this important role. I know James Barta is the right choice for Indiana,” Rokita said in the release. “James is not only brilliant, he is tenacious and excited to represent Hoosiers in this new role before the highest courts of the land.”

According to the press announcement, Barta started working as the state’s deputy solicitor general in 2022.

“I am incredibly grateful and humbled by this opportunity to serve my state and my fellow Hoosiers,” Barta said in the release. “Ever since first studying our nation’s history and ideals, I have desired to advance the rule of law, preserve our system of government, and defend Americans’ liberties. It is a privilege to serve those causes in this new role.”
