The Indiana Supreme Court has received an award from the American Bar Association for its Law Day program this year that focused on Abraham Lincoln as a lawyer. The high court received one of the three 2009 Law Day Outstanding Activity awards.

As part of the "Why Lincoln Was a Lawyer" program, judges, attorneys, paralegals, and law students visited classrooms around the state sharing Lincoln's ideas about the importance of law and its role in shaping American citizens. The program reached approximately 33,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

The May 1 Law Day classroom visits were the culmination of a yearlong project on the part of the Supreme Court's education outreach division, "Courts in the Classroom." Law Day programs across the country celebrated the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. The 2010 Law Day theme is "Law in the 21st Century: Enduring Traditions, Emerging Challenges."

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
