Attorney donation to install handrails at Assembly Hall

Bloomington attorney Ken Nunn really does love Indiana University basketball, so much so that he’s willing to donate money to keep fans safe during games.

Anyone who’s been to Assembly Hall for basketball games can attest to two things: Nunn loves IU basketball and navigating the stairs in the facility can be dangerous. Trying to get to your seat is risky, as the stairs are steep, small, and there are no handrails to grasp. There have been a few times I’ve lost my balance or tripped, but luckily not enough to make me fall. Besides, I wouldn’t have anything to grab on to, except the person in front of me.

But not anymore. The school announced Aug. 17 that thanks to Nunn’s gift, approximately 350 custom-designed handrails will be installed in time for basketball season. The school says that the rails won’t impede views of the court.

“One of the reasons I did this is because I love Indiana University Basketball and Indiana University," said Nunn. “This was a thing that the University needed and the fans needed, so it's my honor to provide this ability to help folks get up and down these steps."

Nunn, who has a bachelor’s and Juris Doctor from the school – loves IU so much that he pays for an advertisement that pops up occasionally during games that flashes his face with the words “Ken Nunn loves IU basketball.”

I couldn’t help but find it amusing that a man who makes his living practicing in personal injury claims has provided a gift that will hopefully prevent any fan injuries while using the stairs.

  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?
