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. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding

  2. A common refrain in the comments on this website comes from people who cannot locate attorneys willing put justice over retainers. At the same time the judiciary threatens to make pro bono work mandatory, seemingly noting the same concern. But what happens to attorneys who have the chumptzah to threatened the legal status quo in Indiana? Ask Gary Welch, ask Paul Ogden, ask me. Speak truth to power, suffer horrendously accordingly. No wonder Hoosier attorneys who want to keep in good graces merely chase the dollars ... the powers that be have no concerns as to those who are ever for sale to the highest bidder ... for those even willing to compromise for $$$ never allow either justice or constitutionality to cause them to stand up to injustice or unconstitutionality. And the bad apples in the Hoosier barrel, like this one, just keep rotting.

  3. I am one of Steele's victims and was taken for $6,000. I want my money back due to him doing nothing for me. I filed for divorce after a 16 year marriage and lost everything. My kids, my home, cars, money, pension. Every attorney I have talked to is not willing to help me. What can I do? I was told i can file a civil suit but you have to have all of Steelers info that I don't have. Of someone can please help me or tell me what info I need would be great.

  4. It would appear that news breaking on Drudge from the Hoosier state (link below) ties back to this Hoosier story from the beginning of the recent police disrespect period .... MCBA president Cassandra Bentley McNair issued the statement on behalf of the association Dec. 1. The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown. “The MCBA does not believe this was a just outcome to this process, and is disheartened that the system we as lawyers are intended to uphold failed the African-American community in such a way,” the association stated. “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” http://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/local/2016/07/18/hate-cops-sign-prompts-controversy/87242664/

  5. What form or who do I talk to about a d felony which I hear is classified as a 6 now? Who do I talk to. About to get my degree and I need this to go away it's been over 7 years if that helps.
