Evansville Bar Association to host discussion on marriage equality

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

An Indiana University Maurer School of Law professor will be the featured speaker at the Evansville Bar Association’s public discussion on marriage equality Friday.

Professor Deborah Widiss will discuss the issues of marriage equality, civil rights and the courts with moderator Cheryl Musgrave, former Vanderburgh County Commissioner.

Widiss’ research has focused on employment law, family law, the legislative process and the significance of gender and gender stereotypes in the development of law and government policy.

“This presentation is in line with the bar’s mission to inform the general public about matters of general importance and interest,” said Scott Wylie, president of the Evansville Bar board of directors. “The bar association does not take an official position on the issues, and the presentation itself will be neutral as to the issues. Our intent is to inform people so that they are able to understand the law behind the headlines.”

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. March 7 in the Blue and Gold Room in the Old National Bank Building in downtown Evansville. Time will be available at the end for questions from the audience.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
