Indiana Roll of Attorneys site gets makeover

The Indiana Roll of Attorneys website has moved into the 21st century and I like it.

Besides getting a new look to match the rest of the recently updated court website, the search function is much more user friendly. As someone who uses the ROA website daily, I’m pleased that I can now enter the person’s first name along with his or her last to search or find someone through his or her attorney number.

Now, instead of having to wade through the one-hundred-plus names that come up when I type in the last name “Smith,” I’m able to narrow my search to include Smith’s first name.

When the results show up on the new ROA site, they provide more information without having to click on a name. I can see attorney number, admit date and his or her status with the bar, as well as city and state information. When I click on a name, the same information as before is provided, but in a cleaner fashion.

While these updates are great, my favorite has to be that I can use the “back” button on my browser and not lose information. With the old ROA site, I had to click the New Search button and retype the information if I didn’t click on the correct “John Smith.” Now, I just hit back and can select another name.

Take a look at the new site for yourself: https://courtapps.in.gov/rollofattorneys  

Once the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals updates its opinions website, (which looks like it was designed in Geocities circa 1997) I will be a very happy court website user.

  1. Uh oh, someone is really going to get their panti ... uh, um ... I mean get upset now: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/mar/31/arkansas-passes-indiana-style-religious-freedom-bill

  2. Bryan, stop insulting the Swedes by comparing them to the American oligarchs. Otherwise your point is well taken.

  3. Sociologist of religion Peter Berger once said that the US is a “nation of Indians ruled by Swedes.” He meant an irreligious elite ruling a religious people, as that Sweden is the world’s least religious country and India the most religious. The idea is that American social elites tend to be much less religious than just about everyone else in the country. If this is true, it helps explain the controversy raking Indiana over Hollywood, San Fran, NYC, academia and downtown Indy hot coals. Nevermind logic, nevermind it is just the 1993 fed bill did, forget the Founders, abandon of historic dedication to religious liberty. The Swedes rule. You cannot argue with elitists. They have the power, they will use the power, sit down and shut up or feel the power. I know firsthand, having been dealt blows from the elite's high and mighty hands often as a mere religious plebe.

  4. I need helping gaining custody of my 5 and 1 year old from my alcoholic girlfriend. This should be an easy case for any lawyer to win... I've just never had the courage to take her that far. She has a record of public intox and other things. She has no job and no where to live othe than with me. But after 5 years of trying to help her with her bad habit, she has put our kids in danger by driving after drinking with them... She got detained yesterday and the police chief released my kids to me from the police station. I live paycheck to paycheck and Im under alot of stress dealing with this situation. Can anyone please help?

  5. The more a state tries to force people to associate, who don't like each other and simply want to lead separate lives, the more that state invalidates itself....... This conflict has shown clearly that the advocates of "tolerance" are themselves intolerant, the advocates of "diversity" intend to inflict themselves on an unwilling majority by force if necessary, until that people complies and relents and allows itself to be made homogenous with the politically correct preferences of the diversity-lobbies. Let's clearly understand, this is force versus force and democracy has nothing to do with this. Democracy is a false god in the first place, even if it is a valid ideal for politics, but it is becoming ever more just an empty slogan that just suckers a bunch of cattle into paying their taxes and volunteering for stupid wars.
