9 a.m. The City of Evansville passed an ordinance banning smoking in workplaces and other public places, including private clubs and taverns, but exempting riverboat casinos. Several private clubs and tavern owners sought injunctive and declaratory relief on grounds the ordinance violates the Indiana Constitution. The Vanderburgh Circuit Court denied injunctive relief and entered a judgment upholding the ordinance. The Court of Appeals affirmed. See VFW Post 2953 v. City of Evansville, No. 82A01-1206-PL-255 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb. 15, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), vacated, and Paul Stieler Enterprises, Inc. v. City of Evansville, No. 82A01-1205-CT-242 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb 15, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted petitions to transfer the cases and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeals.

  1. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  2. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  3. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  4. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  5. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.
