IBA Dakin Leach past winnersTo recognize a female attorney for her professional and personal accomplishments, the Indianapolis Bar Association’s Women and the Law Division is seeking nominations for the 2010 Antoinette Dakin Leach Award.

The award nomination form can be found online at www.indybar.org; please submit nominations by July 31, 2010. The recipient will be honored at a fall luncheon.

In 1990, the Women and the Law Division of the Indianapolis Bar Association established the award to honor outstanding women in the legal profession. Named after one of the first female lawyers in Indiana, the Antoinette Dakin Leach Award is presented only when the Division deems a worthy candidate exists.

Antoinette Dakin Leach (1859-1922) gained admittance to the Indiana Bar only after the Indiana Supreme Court overruled a lower court ruling which stated that a woman was “not a citizen in the sense that she could hold office and practice law.” Ms. Leach went on to a successful career as an attorney and was a state and national leader in the suffragist movement.

Nominations should include overviews of the candidate’s professional accomplishments, leadership characteristics, community involvement, and other personal and professional attributes.

Please take a moment to nominate a woman attorney who has demonstrated some of the attributes of Antoinette Dakin Leach — by encouraging other women in the pursuit of this honorable profession or blazing a path not taken by others.•

  1. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
