Courthouse renovations close courtrooms, move chambers

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Because of major renovations under way at the Birch Bayh Federal Courthouse in Indianapolis, the locations of judges’ chambers have changed and courtrooms have closed.

The renovations have also shut down elevators and blocked public corridors. Attorneys are asked to look for notices issued by the court so they are up-to-date on conference, hearing, and trial locations. It’s recommended that attorneys allow for extra time when arriving to navigate the areas under construction.

The construction is in conjunction with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. New fire and life safety systems and heating and cooling systems are being installed as the courthouse is being made more energy efficient. The construction is expected to be complete by late summer 2012.

Contact the District Court Clerk’s Office with any questions regarding the location of business scheduled before the court at (317) 229-3700.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
