Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

Since receiving a call from the family of Aron Ralston, a hiker who cut off his own arm to free himself from a boulder in Utah in May 2003, Indianapolis attorney Ronald E. Elberger has represented Ralston on a book deal, media appearances, and most recently the deal for a movie about his struggle.

That movie, “127 Hours,” based on the book “Between a Rock and a Hard Place,” is scheduled to premiere Nov. 5, according to a release. The movie premieres will take place in Toronto and London. The book was published in September 2004. Elberger’s firm, Bose McKinney & Evans, announced the film and book re-issue deal Nov. 11, 2009.

The film involved “Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle and writer Simon Beaufoy. Another “Slumdog Millionaire” alum, producer Christian Colson, produced the film with John Smithson, the producer of “Vertical Limit,” another survival story involving mountain climbers.

Ralston has appeared on talk shows and is a motivational speaker where he discusses his ordeal. After his arm was pinned against a canyon wall by a boulder, he amputated it with a pocketknife before descending a 65-foot rock wall and walking 6 miles before he was rescued. His family led the search team when he didn’t check in with them after a longer than usual time had passed.

  1. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
