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.

  5. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.

When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon
