Volunteers Needed for 2012 Mediation Day

Don’t miss out on an opportunity to volunteer for the third annual Mediation Day, hosted by the IndyBar Alternative Dispute Resolution Section. Volunteers at Mediation Day, scheduled for September 21, 2012 at Faegre Baker Daniels, provide a service to the courts and community by volunteering time to mediate several screened cases for litigants who qualify for modest means mediation. Each volunteer mediator agrees to mediate one case starting at either 8 a.m. or 1 p.m. A judicial officer will be on site to approve the mediated agreements. This volunteer opportunity is open to all IndyBar members, though ADR section members will be given preference. All volunteers must be registered mediators. Interested? Contact Phyllis Armstrong at parmstrong@med8.com and indicate your desired start time (8 a.m. or 1 p.m.). Visit indybar.org for more information.

Do You Love to Network?

The IndyBar is excited to launch the Indy Attorneys Network, a brand new group within the bar dedicated solely to facilitating networking between bar members across all practice types and areas, in 2013. A committee is currently being formed to plan the group’s launch and activities for the upcoming year. If you are interested in volunteering for this committee, please contact Chuck Schmal at cschmal@uspatent.com. An organizational meeting for the committee will be held in late August.

Calling All Writers!

The IndyBar is seeking members who are interested in contributing to the bar’s various publications, including the IndyBar website, IndyBar blog and IndyBar pages within the Indiana Lawyer. Writing opportunities are flexible and have the potential to be ongoing or simply one time commitments. Interesting in contributing? Contact Mary Kay Price at mprice@indybar.org, including information on what type of content you feel comfortable contributing.

Recycle them for free with the IndyBar! The IndyBar’s Go Green Committee is sponsoring a Drive-Thru E-Cycling event open to IndyBar members and the public, on Friday, August 24, 2012, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Computer Experts, 101 E.

  1. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  2. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  3. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
