A blue ribbon selection committee acting on behalf of the Indianapolis Bar Association and the Indianapolis Bar Foundation has announced the selection of The Hon. Jane Magnus-Stinson of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana as a recipient of the IndyBar’s prestigious Hon. Paul H. Buchanan Jr. Award of Excellence. Magnus-Stinson will be honored at a luncheon in March.

The Indianapolis Bar Association and Indianapolis Bar Foundation are recognizing her distinguished leadership in the legal community and the commiba-buchanan-award-recipsunity at large, which includes private practice, government service and a distinguished career as a jurist in the Marion Superior Courts and U.S. District Court.

First presented in 1990, the award is named for former Indianapolis Bar Association and Bar Foundation President Judge Paul H.

The honor is meant to “acknowledge individuals with long records of excellence and unique service to the legal profession … whose attainments as a lawyer have been notable, whose contributions to the Indianapolis Bar Association have been unique, and whose honorable service to the profession has extended over a significant period of time. The award is given both to reward those accomplishments and to inspire others to such service.”

Friends and associates of the honoree will be included in the award presentation. Registration for the luncheon will open Jan. 27 on the Bar’s website, www.indybar.org. Cost will be $30 per person.•

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
