By The Hon. Cale Bradford, Indiana Court of Appeals

Dear Fellow IndyBar Members:

It is with great pleasure that I will host this year’s IndyBar Destination CLE, taking place in Sedona, Arizona from November 15 to November 17. To entice your attendance, this year’s CLE will be held at the Enchantment Resort & Mii amo Spa, nestled into the red rock wall of Sedona’s Boynton Canyon. Your Indianapolis Bar Association has worked tirelessly to assemble programming, speakers and events to make this one of the most valuable and memorable seminars and networking experiences of your career.

Along with Scott Newman, former Marion County Prosecutor and Director of Strand Laboratories, I am also honored to be presenting an educational session in Sedona we have dubbed, “Me and You and Rule 702.”

For the past few years, Scott and I have taught a class of up-and-coming expert witnesses at IUPUI, focusing on the admission of expert testimony and expert testimony techniques. As a spinoff of our research and teaching, we have developed a segment for you that tracks the development of law for the admission of expert testimony—from Frye to Federal Rule 702, through Daubert, and on to Kuhmo Tire. We will cover recent amendments to Rule 702 as well as provide a thorough discussion of Indiana Rule of Evidence 702 and the recent Indiana Supreme Court case, Turner v. State.

Is Indiana a Daubert state or not a Daubert state? What are the most important things my expert witness needs to remember while testifying? For answers to these questions and more, it’s time to “get back on the road again” and join the IndyBar in Sedona, Arizona. Great programming and camaraderie await you in November. I hope to see you there!•

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
