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. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
