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.

ISBA to honor judges

The Indiana State Bar’s Federal Judiciary Committee, in conjunction with its Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights and Litigation sections, has planned a reception honoring several members of the judiciary. The event is at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse, outside courtroom 202, 46 E. Ohio St., Indianapolis.

Members of the judiciary to be honored at the event are: Hon. Jon E. DeGuilio, U.S. District Court; Hon. Jane E. Magnus-Stinson, U.S. District Court; Hon. Tanya Walton Pratt, U.S. District Court; Hon. Mark J. Dinsmore, U.S. magistrate judge; and Hon. Denise K. LaRue, U.S. magistrate judge. Attendance is by invitation only.

Before the reception, at 2:30 p.m., the bar will offer a CLE titled “Dollars and Sense: Fee Shifting and Sanctions in Federal Practice,” which is eligible for two hours of ethics CLE. The CLE is $50 for the bar’s Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights and Litigation sections, $80 for other bar members, and $160 for non-members. For more information, or to make reservations, contact Sherry Allan at 800-266-2581 or sallan@inbar.org.

Indy Bar training

The Indianapolis Bar Association’s School Advocacy Program will offer a training session for lawyers, law students, and paralegals interested in supporting the educational success of children with special needs. Made possible through collaboration with the Marion County Foster Youth Education program, the advocacy program is supported by the Department of Child Services, Indianapolis Public Schools, United Way, and Marion County courts. Volunteers will be paired with students who have unmet special education needs and will work with the student, family, caregiver, and school system to secure appropriate education opportunities.

The free training is 9 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 14 at the IndyBar Education Center, 135 N. Pennsylvania St., Suite 1500, Indianapolis. No CLE is available. Participants may register online at www.indybar.org.•

  1. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
