Several bar associations around the state are accepting nominations for awards to present to members at upcoming annual meetings.

The Allen County Bar Association is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Niemann Citation. The citation was established in 2004 to honor the memory of Scott T. Niemann.

The award recognizes a bar member who exemplifies professionalism and excellence in the law, as reflected through legal work, public service and/or leadership.

Niemann practiced law for 23 years in Fort Wayne, focusing on civil litigation. In 2002, he and Martin Fletcher founded Fletcher & Niemann. Niemann died in March 2004 after battling cancer for 18 months.

Nominations are due Aug. 2, and the award will be presented at the bar association’s annual meeting Sept. 30. Nomination forms are available on the Allen County Bar Association’s website.

The Indiana State Bar Association is seeking nominations for 13 awards to be presented at its annual meeting in French Lick in October. The awards are: Civility Awards; Gale M. Phelps Award; Rabb Emison Awards; GP Hall of Fame; Outstanding Judge Award; Women in the Law Recognition Award; Trailblazer/Abriendo Caminos Award; Liberty Bell Award; Outstanding Young Lawyer Award; Affiliate Member Award; David Hamacher Public Service Award; Hon. Viola Taliaferro Award; and the Community Service Award.

More information about the awards and nomination forms are available on the ISBA’s website.

The Indianapolis Bar Association is seeking to recognize the accomplishments of a female attorney in central Indiana through its Antoinette Dakin Leach Award, named after the first woman admitted to the Indiana bar. Nominations are due July 31. More information is available on the IndyBar's website.

  1. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  2. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  3. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  4. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.

  5. You can put your photos anywhere you like... When someone steals it they know it doesn't belong to them. And, a man getting a divorce is automatically not a nice guy...? That's ridiculous. Since when is need of money a conflict of interest? That would mean that no one should have a job unless they are already financially solvent without a job... A photographer is also under no obligation to use a watermark (again, people know when a photo doesn't belong to them) or provide contact information. Hey, he didn't make it easy for me to pay him so I'll just take it! Well heck, might as well walk out of the grocery store with a cart full of food because the lines are too long and you don't find that convenient. "Only in Indiana." Oh, now you're passing judgement on an entire state... What state do you live in? I need to characterize everyone in your state as ignorant and opinionated. And the final bit of ignorance; assuming a photo anyone would want is lucky and then how much does your camera have to cost to make it a good photo, in your obviously relevant opinion?
