Peele Carter Honored with Indianapolis Choice Award

The National Association of Women Business Owners-Indianapolis (NAWBO–Indy) has honored IndyBar member Amie Peele Carter of Baker & Daniels LLP with the Indianapolis Choice award in recognition of her advocacy for the organization and Indiana’s women business owners.

One of NAWBO–Indy’s four Visionary Awards, the Indianapolis Choice award recognizes a person who has enabled women business owners to achieve their potential, has improved the business climate for women, and has fulfilled the potential of her economic and social contributions to Indiana. Carter was selected based on her contributions to organizations that advance women as well as her character, openness and willingness to go above and beyond for friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

1.8 Million New Cases Filed in Indiana Trial Courts in 2010

Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard announced the statistic Dec. 13 with the release of the Indiana Judicial Service Report. He said, “The work of the courts cannot be summed up in numbers, but the 2010 statistics report does offer a snapshot of the volume, breadth, challenges and success stories in each of the courthouses in Indiana’s 92 counties. Indiana judges and trial court staff did a remarkable job of handling the 1.8 million new cases with fairness and professionalism.” For more details and to view the full report, visit the Indiana Supreme Court website.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
