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.

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.

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. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
