An Indianapolis attorney with years of environmental experience has been appointed by the Environmental Protection Agency director to the agency's Office of Air and Radiation. Janet McCabe, executive director of Indianapolis' Improving Kids' Environment, a nonprofit advocacy group that works to reduce environmental threats to children's health, will join the government agency as the principal deputy assistant administrator of OAR.

McCabe came to Indiana in 1993 and worked for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management's Office of Air Quality, serving as director beginning in 1998. She also worked as an adjunct professor in the Department of Public Health at Indiana University School of Medicine. McCabe has been a member of EPA's Clean Air Act Advisory Committee and Children's Health Protection Advisory Group, and the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences Council.

Before moving to Indiana, McCabe was Massachusetts' assistant secretary for environmental affairs and assistant attorney general in the state's Environmental Protection Division. She graduated from Harvard Law School in 1983.

McCabe is scheduled to begin at the EPA on Nov. 9, where she will help manage programs designed to improve air quality, address global climate change, and implement indoor air and radiation programs.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
