Bar Crawl

Bar Crawl is Indiana Lawyer’s section highlighting bar association news around the state. The IL strives to include bar association news and trends in its regular stories, and we would like to include more news from specialty and county bars. If you’d like to submit an update about your bar association or a photo from an event your bar association has hosted, or if you have questions about having your bar association news included in the newspaper, please send it to Jenny Montgomery at jmontgomery@ibj.com, along with contact information for any follow-up questions at least two weeks in advance of the issue date.

IndyBar justice talk

The seminar is from 4 to 5 p.m. Oct. 27, with a cocktail reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The cost to attend is between $10 and $90, depending on bar membership and law school status. Attendance is free for members of IndyBar’s government practice section, and one hour of continuing legal education is available.

Allen Co. officers

At its annual meeting on Sept. 28, the members of the Allen County Bar Association elected Shannon K. Reed as president for the fiscal year Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. Reed is an attorney with Baker & Daniels.

Other officers elected were Stephen P. Rademaker as president-elect, the Hon. David J. Avery of Allen Superior Court as vice president, R. David Boyer II of Boyer & Boyer as treasurer, and Joshua C. Neal of Barrett & McNagny as secretary. Directors elected at the meeting were Bart A. Arnold of Arnold Terrill Anzini, John H. Brandt of Beckman Lawson, V. Scott Kingdon, and Noel H. Knox of Monarch Capital Management, Inc.

The bar recognized three lawyers for 50 years of service, presenting Golden Career Awards to: J. Philip Burt of Burt Blee Dixon Sutton & Bloom, Jack W. Lawson of Beckman Lawson, and John R. Leal. Megan R. Burzych of Tourkow Crell Rosenblatt & Johnston was honored with the Outstanding Contributor Award for her service, leadership and dedication to the Allen County Bar Association during the past year.

Robert S. Walters received the Niemann Citation for Excellence and Professionalism. Named after the late Scott Niemann, the award is given annually to a member of the Allen County Bar Association who exemplifies professionalism and excellence in the practice of law, as reflected in distinguished legal work, professionalism, public service and/or leadership.

St. Joe survey

The St. Joseph County Bar Association has released the findings of its annual survey of Superior judges. The bar association conducts the survey each year even if no judges are up for retention, which is the case for 2011.

Separate surveys are sent to SJCBA members for each of the eight Superior judges. Judges who are elected are not rated. Respondents are asked to rate the judges as unacceptable through exceptional on various criteria, such as professionalism and legal ability.

The results of the 2011 survey are available on the SJCBA’s website: http://www.sjcba.org/judiciary/Judicial_Survey_2011.pdf.•

  1. 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.

  2. 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."

  3. wow is this a bunch of bs! i know the facts!

  4. MCBA .... time for a new release about your entire membership (or is it just the alter ego) being "saddened and disappointed" in the failure to lynch a police officer protecting himself in the line of duty. But this time against Eric Holder and the Federal Bureau of Investigation: "WASHINGTON — Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday." http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/22/us/justice-department-ferguson-civil-rights-darren-wilson.html?ref=us&_r=0

  5. Dr wail asfour lives 3 hours from the hospital,where if he gets an emergency at least he needs three hours,while even if he is on call he should be in a location where it gives him max 10 minutes to be beside the patient,they get paid double on their on call days ,where look how they handle it,so if the death of the patient occurs on weekend and these doctors still repeat same pattern such issue should be raised,they should be closer to the patient.on other hand if all the death occured on the absence of the Dr and the nurses handle it,the nurses should get trained how to function appearntly they not that good,if the Dr lives 3 hours far from the hospital on his call days he should sleep in the hospital
