7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judges John Tinder and David Hamilton – both former judges in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, are two of the featured speakers at the fifth annual Court History and Continuing Legal Education Symposium in the Southern District.
Tinder and Hamilton will speak about the differences they have observed between their experiences on the District and Circuit court benches.
The Nov. 16 event will also feature retired Indiana Justice Theodore Boehm, who will discuss gerrymandering and election law; and Doria Lynch, historian for the Southern District of Indiana. Lynch will speak about the 1912 Los Angeles Times bombing conspiracy case tried before federal Judge Albert B. Anderson in Indianapolis.
The symposium is sponsored by the Historical Society of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, and CLE credit is available. The event is from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Indianapolis.
