Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Fellows of the Indiana Bar Foundation will host their annual meeting and dinner July 15 in French Lick. New Fellows will be inducted, the Legendary Lawyer honoree will be announced, and Stephen L. Ferguson will address the audience.

Ferguson, who graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law, is board chair of Cook Group Inc. The Bloomington-based company is parent to companies worldwide involved in the research, development, manufacture, and sale of medical devices. Ferguson is also president of French Lick Springs Resorts & Spa and was involved in the restoration of the French Lick Springs Hotel and the West Baden Springs Hotel. He will talk about the restoration at the dinner.

A cocktail reception begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. The event is open to non-Fellows at a cost of $100 per person before July 1 for dinner and cocktails. After July 1, the cost is $120 per person. More information is available on the INBF website, www.inbf.org, or by calling 317-269-7864. Reduced rates on lodging are available for attendees because the event is in collaboration with the Indiana Continuing Legal Education Forum Master’s Series Conference.

The Fellows began in 1979 with 400 attorneys pledging in excess of $400,000 to the foundation. Membership is by invitation only. A nominating committee invites candidates, reviews their credentials, and makes recommendations to the board. Eligible candidates include lawyers in good standing with the Indiana State Bar Association who are recognized for professional, public, and private careers that demonstrate outstanding legal ability, devotion to the welfare of others, and advancement of the legal profession. In 2010, there were 900 members.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
