Programming causes error on annual attorney registrations

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Attorney annual registration statements mailed last month may contain an error because of programming, but state officials say lawyers don’t have to correct that specific problem.

The Clerk of the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court mailed the registration statements July 30. The statements include attorney contact information and instruct attorneys to log onto the Clerk’s website to correct or update their contact information.

The programming error caused attorney fax numbers to print incorrectly: the first two digits were cut off, and two zeroes were appended to the end.

“Attorneys do NOT need to log onto the Roll of Attorneys website to ‘correct’ this error,” says a release from the state courts.  

However, if the fax number is otherwise incorrect or if any other information is out-of-date, attorneys do need to update that information.

The state’s goal is to have a new online registration process in 2011, making this the last year annual registration forms will be sent by mail. Because of this change, the Supreme Court issued an order July 30 – effective immediately – amending Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 2(a) to require all active and inactive attorneys to supply an e-mail address as part of the contact information listed for them on the Roll of Attorneys.

  5. 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."
