Public Hearings Set for Review of Marion County Small Claims Courts

The task force created to evaluate the Marion County Small Claims Courts scheduled three public hearings to review the practices and procedures used in the those courts. Hearings took place on Wed., Feb. 22, and Wed., Feb. 29 with another on Wed., March 7 at 6 p.m. in the Marion Circuit Courtroom. This task force was recently created by the Indiana Supreme Court after critical reports in the national press suggested litigants in those courts do not always have the same access to justice as litigants in other Indiana courts. The Indiana Supreme Court website contains additional information on the task force and the public hearings.

  2. A traditional parade of attorneys? Really Evansville? Y'all need to get out more. When is the traditional parade of notaries? Nurses? Sanitation workers? Pole dancers? I gotta wonder, do throngs of admiring citizens gather to laud these marching servants of the constitution? "Show us your billing records!!!" Hoping some video gets posted. Ours is not a narcissistic profession by any chance, is it? Nah .....

  5. He must be a Rethuglican, for if from the other side of the aisle such acts would be merely personal and thus not something that attaches to his professional life. AND ... gotta love this ... oh, and on top of talking dirty on the phone, he also, as an aside, guess we should mention, might be important, not sure, but ....
