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.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
