Darden retires, announces McKinney scholarship

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Court of Appeals Judge Carr L. Darden will establish a scholarship in the name of himself and his wife of 57 years at his alma mater, the Indiana University McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. The judge and other officials announced the scholarship Wednesday during his Statehouse retirement ceremony.

When fully endowed, The Judge Carr L. Darden and Mrs. Lundy Darden Public Sector Legal Education Scholarship will be awarded to McKinney students who have demonstrated an interest in state and local government and pursuing a career in public service. Details about the projected endowment and when the scholarship may be available were not immediately available Wednesday.

Darden said he hoped that the scholarship might in a small way help students from diverse backgrounds who want to use their legal education to serve the public. He told a packed Supreme Court gallery that each of them had encountered someone in their lives who extended a helping hand.

“We have to prepare the way for the next generation that will follow us,” said Darden, who upon turning 75 reached the statutory age of retirement for judges.

Darden said the scholarship would help defray some of the costs of law school for students who want to enter public fields of the profession that typically pay less than private practice. The scholarship also represented a way for him to give back.

“My wife and I have been given so much,” he said.

Marion Superior Judge David Shaheed said the Marion County Bar Association was a sponsor of the scholarship and would assist in raising money for it. The MCBA will host a fundraising dinner in Darden’s honor Sept. 14 at the downtown Indianapolis Marriott, 350 W. Maryland St.

Court of Appeals Chief Judge Margret Robb said Darden’s fellow judges on the court had made contributions to the scholarship fund as his parting gift from the court.

Robb also announced that the Indiana Continuing Legal Education Opportunity summer intern program that promotes diversity in the profession would henceforth be known as the Carr L. Darden CLEO summer intern program.

Darden, a former Marion Superior Court judge and chief deputy state public defender, was appointed to the Court of Appeals by Gov. Evan Bayh in 1994. He will continue to serve as a senior judge.

Gov. Mitch Daniels has until Aug. 11 to name Darden’s replacement from three candidates selected in June by the Judicial Nominating Commission. They are Marion Superior Judge Robert Altice Jr., public defender Patricia Caress McMath, and Madison Circuit Judge Rudolph Pyle III.

  1. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  2. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  3. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
