Committee ready to explore new home for ISBA, ICLEF, IBF

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
A committee of 10 people is now tasked with finding a new, common home for three pillar organizations of the Indiana legal community.

The mission is to find a single facility that the Indiana State Bar Association, Indiana Continuing Legal Education Foundation, and the Indiana Bar Foundation can share.

Prior to 2003, all three shared a roof. But the ISBA moved to the fifth floor of One Indiana Square to be on its own, leaving ICLEF and the IBF at 230 E. Ohio St. Leases on both locations expire in 2011, but this is the year to lay the groundwork for a new, common location, according to ISBA president Richard Eynon.

Past ISBA president Jim Riley has agreed to chair the committee. Members include: Mike Bishop, Jim Casey, and Executive Director Chuck Dunlap on the IBF side; ICLEF members include board members Linda Meier and Andrew Soschnick, as well as Executive Director Tom von Kamecke; and Clyde Compton, Marianne Owens, and Executive Director Tom Pyrz for the ISBA.

While the committee hasn ;t met yet, Eynon said he expects that to happen soon following the annual spring retreat to Las Vegas next week. Several members of the committee, including Riley, plan to attend the retreat, and Eynon hopes to discuss the issue there.

Eynon has previously said the committee ;s main priority will be researching facility needs and whether new construction or existing real estate is the best option. However, the committee will also focus on how all three entities co-exist and what can be done to better increase functions for the state ;s legal community.

  1. It is amazing how selectively courts can read cases and how two very similar factpatterns can result in quite different renderings. I cited this very same argument in Brown v. Bowman, lost. I guess it is panel, panel, panel when one is on appeal. Sad thing is, I had Sykes. Same argument, she went the opposite. Her Rooker-Feldman jurisprudence is now decidedly unintelligible.

  2. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  3. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?

  4. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  5. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.
