Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Donald Lundberg, the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission executive secretary, has announced his resignation as head of the agency, effective Jan. 1, 2010. Lundberg will join Barnes & Thornburg as a partner and deputy general counsel to the firm.

He joined the disciplinary commission in December 1991 and spent the last two decades investigating and prosecuting cases of alleged attorney misconduct. Lundberg also taught legal ethics at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington and Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis. He frequently presents at continuing legal education events on professional responsibility and legal ethics topics. He's also authored several articles and writes a regular legal ethics column for RES GESTAE.

Before joining the disciplinary commission, Lundberg worked as the director of litigation for Legal Services Organization of Indiana, Inc., now Indiana Legal Services, Inc. He is a summa cum laude graduate of what is now known as the Maurer School of Law and was admitted to the bar in 1976. He's admitted to practice in Indiana and a member of the bars of the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

"Being a part of this extraordinary court's lawyer regulation enterprise has been a singular honor," Lundberg said in a statement released by the Supreme Court. "It has also been a privilege to work over a period of eighteen years with a succession of thoughtful, bright and decent Commissioners and a truly wonderful staff."

The commission will launch a search for a successor and will eventually submit a proposed new executive secretary for consideration and approval by the Supreme Court.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. 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"

  5. 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.
