IndyBar names new officers

The Indianapolis Bar Association’s nominating committee has announced the selection of Jeffrey Abrams of Benesch Friedlander Copland & Aronoff as the 2014 president of the association. Currently serving as IndyBar’s treasurer, Abrams will serve as the association’s 1st vice president on the 2012 board of directors.

The Hon. Robyn Moberly of the Marion Superior Court was named to a 2-year term as treasurer. Currently chair of the Senior Counsel Division, Judge Moberly has previously served as secretary for the board of directors and has chaired a number of committees for the association.

Five at-large directors were also selected. Chosen to serve through 2013 were: The Hon. Robert Altice of the Marion Superior Court; Jennifer Lukemeyer of Voyles Zahn Paul Hogan & Merriman; John Trimble of Lewis Wagner; William Winingham of Wilson Kehoe & Winingham; and Sally Zweig of Katz & Korin.

The final selection was for delegate to the American Bar Association House of Delegates. Phil Isenbarger of Bingham McHale, who is completing an unexpired term of the previous delegate, was selected to a full 2-year term.

As determined by previous nomination, the 2012 board of directors will be led by President Scott Chinn of Baker & Daniels. Kerry Blomquist of the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be president elect.•

  1. Just an aside, but regardless of the outcome, I 'm proud of Judge William Hughes. He was the original magistrate on the Home place issue. He ruled for Home Place, and was primaried by Brainard for it. Their tool Poindexter failed to unseat Hughes, who won support for his honesty and courage throughout the county, and he was reelected Judge of Hamilton County's Superior Court. You can still stand for something and survive. Thanks, Judge Hughes!

  2. CCHP's real accomplishment is the 2015 law signed by Gov Pence that basically outlaws any annexation that is forced where a 65% majority of landowners in the affected area disagree. Regardless of whether HP wins or loses, the citizens of Indiana will not have another fiasco like this. The law Gov Pence signed is a direct result of this malgovernance.

  3. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  4. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  5. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.
