IBA: AIB Touted as 'Best Alternative'

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Whether you are a sole practitioner or the managing partner of one of Indy’s largest law firms, the IndyBar’s Attorneys for an Independent Bench (“AIB”) may be the best alternative to support judicial candidates in the 2012 elections for Marion Circuit and Superior Courts.

Chaired by former Indiana Supreme Court Justice Theodore Boehm, AIB was formed to receive contributions from those within the Indiana legal community wishing to support judicial candidates without regard to political affiliation.

“Judges have become vehicles for raising funds for political parties,” Justice Boehm remarked in his public comments upon his retirement from the bench. In creating AIB, it was the intention of the Indianapolis Bar Association to address such concerns while promoting public confidence in attorneys, judges and the justice system.

All contributions received by AIB, less minimal administrative costs, will distribute equally among all judicial candidates on the certified candidate list released by the Election Division of the Indiana Secretary of State following the May 2012 primary.

Voluntary contributions to the PAC are now being accepted and will continue to be until forty-five days prior to the November 6, 2012 general election. Checks should be made to Attorneys for an Independent Bench and sent to the Indianapolis Bar Association at 135 Pennsylvania Street, Ste. 1500, Indianapolis IN 46204, or donate online at www.indybar.org/aib. A complete list of all donors will be filed timely with the Marion County Election Board.•

  1. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  2. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  3. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.

  4. 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.

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