Gilbert V. Indeglia is a justice on the Rhode Island Supreme Court. He was nominated to the court by Republican Governor Donald Carcieri in March of 2010 and he was sworn in on April 28, 2010. The justices of the Rhode Island Supreme Court hold office for life.
Indeglia practiced law for 23 years. He was a member of the Rhode Island House of Representatives from 1985 and 1989. Prior to that he worked as a town solicitor and town council president in South Kingstown from 1977 to 1984. From 1989 to 2000, he served on the Rhode Island District Court. He joined the Rhode Island Superior Court in 2000 and served there until his appointment to the Rhode Island Supreme Court in 2010.
In October 2012, political science professors Adam Bonica and Michael Woodruff of Stanford University attempted to determine the partisan ideology of state supreme court justices in their paper, State Supreme Court Ideology and 'New Style' Judicial Campaigns. A score above 0 indicated a more conservative leaning ideology while scores below 0 are more liberal. Indeglia received a Campaign finance score (CFscore) of -0.39, indicating a liberal ideological leaning. This is less liberal than the average CF score of -0.50 that justices received in Rhode Island. The study is based on data from campaign contributions by judges themselves, the partisan leaning of contributors to the judges or, in the absence of elections, the ideology of the appointing body (governor or legislature). This study is not a definitive label of a justice, but an academic gauge of various factors.
