1 p.m. 55A05-1212-CT-639. Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. B.R., a minor child suffered a severe brain injury after nearly drowning while placed in respite foster care.  The foster care placement was arranged by Adult and Child Mental Health Center (“the Health Center”), which operates under a contract with the Marion County Department of Child Services.  B.R., by his court-appointed guardian, filed a complaint against the Health Center arguing that the Health Center owed and breached its duty to use reasonable care in providing and supervising foster care and services to B.R.  The Health Center filed a motion to dismiss the complaint pursuant to Trial Rule 12(B)(1) claiming lack of subject matter jurisdiction.  Specifically, the Health Center argued that it is a qualified health care provider and B.R.’s claims for his injuries are subject to the medical review panel requirement of the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act.  The trial court agreed and dismissed the complaint.  B.R., by his guardian, now appeals.

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
