IBA: Magistrate/Commissioner Survey Complete

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indianapolis Bar Association has delivered the results of a recent survey regarding the performance of all current Magistrates and Commissioners now serving those courts to the Marion Circuit and Superior Courts. The online survey was produced by the Indianapolis Bar Association at the request of the Court’s Executive Committee.

“The Magistrate and Commissioner Committee of the courts reviewed the survey results and shared them with the judicial officers and their supervising judges,” said Judge Robyn Moberly, a member of the committee. “The survey results were very consistent which gave us confidence in their reliability.  Most of the comments were constructive and have already been useful in addressing areas of weakness or concern. Our judges continue to stress the importance of competency, timeliness, and judicial demeanor in our court’s performance and this survey assisted the judges in targeting where more training is necessary. 

Nearly 1,200 attorneys responded to the survey which was sent by email to all attorneys in the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office and the Marion County Public Defender Agency, those entering an appearance in Marion Circuit Court or any of the county’s superior courts in the past three years, and all current attorney members of the Indianapolis Bar Association.

Those receiving the survey were asked to only respond in regard to those judicial officers with whom they have had direct professional contact. Forty-four judicial officers were listed.

Moberly said, “This is another example of the bar supporting the efforts of the judiciary to constantly improve ourselves.  Thanks to all of the lawyers who took the time to respond to the survey.”•

  1. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
