When one door closes another one opens. The Marion Superior Court Law Library at the City-County Building will officially close Dec. 31, but in early 2010 the reference materials from that library will be relocated to the Central Library branch of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library in downtown Indianapolis, 40 E. St. Clair St., the court announced today.

Because the materials will be available through the IMCPL, it will be more convenient to access them. Those who wish to use these resources will no longer be restricted to the operational hours of the City-County Building, which is closed on weekends, and will have easier access to parking in the library's underground garage.

The central library's regular hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.

Those who wish to reference the materials will also have access to library staff, brochures, free Internet access via a computer and wireless Internet, printing and copier services, and there will also be a copy of the "Going Pro Se" DVD for those who are representing themselves on cases, according to the court's release.

"The library has always helped Marion County residents with their information needs and this additional legal information is a perfect fit with IMCPL's mission to provide the community with essential information and resources," said Laura Bramble, the library's chief executive officer, in a statement.

Bramble worked with Marion Superior Judge Heather Welch on the partnership. Judge Welch has served as the supervising judge for the county's law library and currently serves as the civil term chairperson.

More information about this move will be included in a story about law libraries around Indiana scheduled for the Jan. 6-19, 2010, edition of Indiana Lawyer.

  1. Or does the study merely wish they fade away? “It just hasn’t risen substantially in decades,” Joan Williams, director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California Hastings College of the Law told Law360. “What we should be looking for is progress, and that’s not what we’re seeing.” PROGRESS = less white males in leadership. Thus the heading and honest questions here ....

  2. One need not wonder why we are importing sex slaves into North America.

  3. Joseph Buser, Montgomery County Chief Prosecutor, has been involved in both representing the State of Indiana as Prosecutor while filing as Representing Attorney on behalf of himself and the State of Indiana in Civil Proceedings for seized cash and merchandise using a Verified Complaint For Forfeiture of Motor Vehicle, Us Currency And Reimbursement Of Costs, as is evident in Montgomery County Circuit Court Case Number 54C01-1401-MI-000018, CCS below, seen before Judge Harry Siamas, and filed on 01/13/2014. Sheriff Mark Castille is also named. All three defendants named by summons have prior convictions under Mr. Buser, which as the Indiana Supreme Court, in the opinion of The Matter of Mark R. McKinney, No. 18S00-0905-DI-220, stated that McKinney created a conflict of interest by simultaneously prosecuting drug offender cases while pocketing assets seized from defendants in those cases. All moneys that come from forfeitures MUST go to the COMMON SCHOOL FUND.
