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?

  1. All the lawyers involved in this don't add up to a hill of beans; mostly yes-men punching their tickets for future advancement. REMF types. Window dressing. Who in this mess was a real hero? the whistleblower that let the public know about the torture, whom the US sent to Jail. John Kyriakou. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/26/us/ex-officer-for-cia-is-sentenced-in-leak-case.html?_r=0 Now, considering that Torture is Illegal, considering that during Vietnam a soldier was court-martialed and imprisoned for waterboarding, why has the whistleblower gone to jail but none of the torturers have been held to account? It's amazing that Uncle Sam's sunk lower than Vietnam. But that's where we're at. An even more unjust and pointless war conducted in an even more bogus manner. this from npr: "On Jan. 21, 1968, The Washington Post ran a front-page photo of a U.S. soldier supervising the waterboarding of a captured North Vietnamese soldier. The caption said the technique induced "a flooding sense of suffocation and drowning, meant to make him talk." The picture led to an Army investigation and, two months later, the court martial of the soldier." Today, the US itself has become lawless.

  2. "Brain Damage" alright.... The lunatic is on the grass/ The lunatic is on the grass/ Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs/ Got to keep the loonies on the path.... The lunatic is in the hall/ The lunatics are in my hall/ The paper holds their folded faces to the floor/ And every day the paper boy brings more/ And if the dam breaks open many years too soon/ And if there is no room upon the hill/ And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too/ I'll see you on the dark side of the moon!!!

  3. It is amazing how selectively courts can read cases and how two very similar factpatterns can result in quite different renderings. I cited this very same argument in Brown v. Bowman, lost. I guess it is panel, panel, panel when one is on appeal. Sad thing is, I had Sykes. Same argument, she went the opposite. Her Rooker-Feldman jurisprudence is now decidedly unintelligible.

  4. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  5. 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?
