Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
