Indianapolis Bar making callfor Green Initiative members

The Indianapolis Bar Association is taking applications for its environmental program, Green Legal Initiative.

Now in its second year, the initiative encourages the legal community to commit to practicing law in ways that are environmentally safe and sustainable.

To participate, legal entities must complete a Green Legal Initiative application. Also, they can evaluate their green status by submitting a Green Business Practice Certification and complying with green business practices in such categories as water and energy conservation, paper reduction and recycling.

Green Legal Initiative members will be recognized by the IndyBar at the annual recognition luncheon and on the bar association’s website.

Applications are due by Sept. 13. For more information, visit www.indybar.org.

Indiana Bar Foundation names Legendary Lawyer for 2013

Retired Indianapolis attorney Henry C. Ryder has been selected to receive the Indianapolis Bar Foundation’s 2013 Legendary Lawyer Award.

The Legendary Lawyer Award recognizes an IBF fellow whose service to the community and legal career have demonstrated the highest standards of the legal profession.

Ryder practiced law for 54 years, retiring eight years ago. He focused much of his work on representing management in labor relations and employment matters.

After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School in 1951, Ryder served two years during the Korean War. Upon returning home, he joined the Indianapolis firm of Buschmann Krieg DeVault and Alexander in 1953.

Seven years later, Ryder and William E. Roberts founded the firm Roberts & Ryder. He finished his career as a partner and of counsel at Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Ryder will receive the award at a reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Sept. 6 at Barnes & Thornburg. To reserve a seat, contact the IBF at 317-269-2415.•

  1. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
