Susan Brooks, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, is stepping down from her post at the end of September to join Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana as general counsel. Her first day will be Oct. 1.

Brooks wasn't considering leaving her position as U.S. Attorney, but when the opportunity to join Ivy Tech came in the middle of the summer and she saw what the college was doing in the state, she decided to take the position.

"I thought it would be a really wonderful fit of my legal skills as well as my management skills and community building skills," Brooks said.

Brooks was appointed by President George W. Bush and was confirmed by the Senate in October 2001. Prior to becoming a U.S. Attorney, she worked at law firms McClure McClure & Kammen and Ice Miller, and was deputy mayor in 1998 and 1999 in then-Indianapolis Mayor Stephen Goldsmith's administration. Brooks earned her law degree at Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis in 1985.

Ivy Tech will announce more details about Brooks' role at the university Sept. 4. The college has 23 campuses around the state and serves more than 100,000 students a year. This story will be updated in the Sept. 5 issue of Indiana Lawyer.

  1. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  2. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  3. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation." More reading here: http://www.guns.com/2015/03/18/kansas-house-panel-goes-all-in-on-constitutional-carry-measure/ Time to man up, Hoosiers. (And I do not mean that in a sexist way.)

  4. This is why it is important to consider Long term care insurance. For you and for your loved ones

  5. I am terrified to see Fracking going on not only in Indiana but in Knox county. Water is the most important resource we have any where. It will be the new gold, and we can't live without it and we can live without gold. How ignorant are people?
