Nominations Now Open for 2013 IndyBar Board of DirectorsThe nomination period has begun for the 2013 board of directors of the Indianapolis Bar Association, and Hon. Jane Magnus-Stinson of United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana has been appointed to chair the effort. Self-nominations for the board are encouraged, as are nominations of colleagues. The following vacancies exist for the coming year and must be filled by an attorney member:

1st Vice President (serves one-year term and will automatically assume the office of President-elect in 2014)

Secretary (two-year term, 2013 and 2014)

At-Large Member of Board of Managers (five positions, each two-year terms, 2013 and 2014)

Letters or the nomination form found on the indybar.org website should be forwarded to the bar office by July 23, 2012. The nominating committee will select a slate of nominees, which reflects our geographic, ethnic, minority, gender and practice area diversity while recognizing leadership and service to the Indianapolis Bar Association.

IndyBar members wishing to seek election outside the nominating process may file a petition ballot which is now available at the bar office. To be valid, the petition must be filed by July 23, 2012, and must contain the signatures of at least 50 attorney members of the Indianapolis Bar Association.

  1. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
