Auction benefits domestic violence victims

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Women's Law Caucus at Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington has raised $11,000 for two local organizations working with victims of domestic violence.

Auctioning off packages donated by law school faculty and staff - including a Trivial Pursuit competition and an afternoon of golf with school staff - and packages from local businesses, the caucus raised more than $11,000 for Bloomington's Middle Way House and Protective Order Project at the Feb. 5 auction. This year's auction beat last year's record-setting turnout.

Middle Way House provides extensive support to domestic violence victims, including housing, child care, and legal assistance. The Protective Order Project, co-founded by now-Dean Lauren Robel in 1989, is a student-directed organization based at the law school that combines the legal expertise of faculty, students, and volunteer attorneys to help clients get protective orders, and utilizes other legal methods to help domestic violence victims.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
