The Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana was a proud sponsor of the American Cancer Society Discovery Ball Nov. 15 through its Joan Fullam Irick Memorial Fund.

Joan Fullam Irick was the president of DTCI in 2002 when she was diagnosed with colon cancer. She lost her battle in June 2003. DTCI quickly established a fund in her memory through donations from its members.

Over the years, many Indiana law students have received scholarships from the Irick Fund. This year, the remaining funds were donated to the American Cancer Society’s Discovery Ball. The ball was held in Indianapolis at the Westin Hotel. Honoring Irick’s memory at the event were her husband, Tom; and her daughter and son-in-law, Stephanie and Chris Drewry. DTCI directors Tom Hays and Libby Moss were in attendance along with executive director Lisa Mortier and a table of 10 from Kightlinger & Gray, the firm where Irick practiced law for 24 years.•

  1. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  2. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  3. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  4. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.

  5. They ruled there is no absolute right to keep a license, whether it be for a lifetime or a short period of time. So with that being said, this state taught me at the age of 15 how to obtain that license. I am actually doing something that I was taught to do, I'm not breaking the law breaking the rules and according to the Interstate Compact the National Interstate Compact...driving while suspended is a minor offense. So, do with that what you will..Indiana sucks when it comes to the driving laws, they really and truly need to reevaluate their priorities and honestly put the good of the community first... I mean, what's more important the pedophile drug dealer or wasting time and money to keep us off the streets?
