DTCI-SchultzThe 2012 DRI Annual Meeting will return to the Crescent City – New Orleans, La., – Oct. 24-28. For those of you who have had the pleasure of attending prior annual meetings in New Orleans, you will understand what a great time is in store for all attendees.

This year’s annual meeting will take place at the New Orleans Marriott, which is a beautiful hotel located just a few steps off the French Quarter. This year’s meeting will kick off on Thursday with a point-counterpoint discussion of the political landscape by Karen Hughes and Dee Dee Myers, who served in the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton respectively. The DRI Awards Luncheon speaker is Roy Blount Jr., a southern humorist and panelist on National Public Radio’s “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me.” Friday’s keynote speaker is internationally acclaimed author Niall Ferguson, one of the world’s leading historians of the global economy. His latest book, “Civilization: The West and the Rest,” is already an international best seller.

Other notable speakers on the program are Terri Morrison, author of “Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands,” presenting on Thursday; and Paul Sullivan, author of “Clutch,” and Shankar Vedantam, author of “The Hidden Brain,” presenting on Saturday. In addition, attendees can earn up to 12.25 hours of CLE credit, including cutting-edge programs from our substantive law and practice area committees.

In typical DRI fashion, a number of wonderful social activities have been planned. Beginning on Wednesday, a reception will be held for new and prospective members followed by the Welcome Reception – New Orleans style. On Thursday, spend the evening at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which will include on-field competitions with plenty of food, beverages and music. Another networking reception will be held on Friday conducted by the DRI Diversity Committee. The week’s social activities will be capped off on Saturday night at the Presidential Gala and installation ceremony, which will include a silent auction of many fabulous items.

In addition to all of these activities, the wonderful fun and atmosphere of New Orleans will be at your doorstep. From Bourbon Street to the Garden District, New Orleans is a great destination.

If you have been considering a DRI annual meeting, now is the time to attend. Register before Sept. 26, 2012, and save $200 off the registration price. For registration and hotel materials, log on to www.DRI.org.•

  1. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  2. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  3. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  4. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.

  5. You can put your photos anywhere you like... When someone steals it they know it doesn't belong to them. And, a man getting a divorce is automatically not a nice guy...? That's ridiculous. Since when is need of money a conflict of interest? That would mean that no one should have a job unless they are already financially solvent without a job... A photographer is also under no obligation to use a watermark (again, people know when a photo doesn't belong to them) or provide contact information. Hey, he didn't make it easy for me to pay him so I'll just take it! Well heck, might as well walk out of the grocery store with a cart full of food because the lines are too long and you don't find that convenient. "Only in Indiana." Oh, now you're passing judgement on an entire state... What state do you live in? I need to characterize everyone in your state as ignorant and opinionated. And the final bit of ignorance; assuming a photo anyone would want is lucky and then how much does your camera have to cost to make it a good photo, in your obviously relevant opinion?
