Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Indiana is now accepting comments on proposed local rule amendments. Changes have been made to dozens of local rules, including L. R. 5.1.1 - Constitutional Challenge to a Statute Notice; L.R. 7.1 - Motion Practice; Length and Form of Briefs; and L.R. 200.1 - Bankruptcy Cases and Proceedings. Many of the proposed changes are to bring the Northern District's local rules in line with the rules from the Southern District of Indiana or with the new time-computation amendments and other federal rules that become effective Dec. 1, 2009.

Comments are due by Nov. 2, 2009, and may be sent to Local Rules Comments, Office of the Clerk, 204 S. Main St., Room 304, South Bend, IN 46601 or to inndlocalrules@innd.uscourts.gov.

  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.
