Feedback Requested on Attorney Reinstatement

Former Indianapolis Bar Association member Everett E. Powell II has petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission for reinstatement to the practice of law. The commission has requested that members of the IndyBar who have an opinion that Mr. Powell should, or should not, be readmitted to practice address the commission by letter stating their views as soon as possible. Letters should be sent to the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission, 30 S. Meridian St., Suite 850, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

Are You Green Legal?

While there are numerous “go green” resources already available to the public, the Indianapolis Bar Association recognizes that attorneys and law firms face unique challenges to going green. There is no one-size-fits all approach to going green, and it is the goal of the IndyBar’s Go Green Committee, a subcommittee of the Young Lawyers Division, to help attorneys and firms to develop strategies that work for them.

Visit www.indybar.org for details on the bar’s Green Legal Initiative.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
