Goodbye paper, hello keyboard.

The Indiana Appellate Clerk’s Office has launched a new site for attorneys and judges to maintain their licenses and update other information. We wrote about the new portal in our latest issue of Indiana Lawyer.

I’m curious if you’ve had a chance to take a look at the site.  What are your thoughts about doing everything online? Do you prefer to get notifications via email instead of letters? Are there any downsides to this new system? Let us know what you think about the changes.

  • Online Atty Registration
    I used the site and it worked fine. However, I would be able to open a letter, write a check, and return mail faster than working through the site requirements. As usual, time and efficiency take a back seat to a "new technical" approach. Great for the provider (Clerk of Court) but more time for end user. Be aware that I am over 50 and may be a little biased when I am told the new way is so much "better"! Right! LOL
  • e-check mechanism needs tweaking
    I have no great problem with an online payment setup, but I think the e-check setup needs some work. I tried entering my routing and account number twice, to no avail.
  • Bugs in system
    The first time I tried, the Clerk's portal system was down, and I was told to wait an hour and try again. After I opened the site and paid by credit card, I was not allowed to enter my email address to get a receipt. The current system will not accept email addressess over 30 characters to return a receipt. I was told this will be increased to 50 within 30 days. I had to use my personal email address to receive a receipt, and it did not list who the payee was.

  1. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?

  2. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  3. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  4. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  5. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.
