Tireless effort, unique ideas, and a commitment to service are shared qualities within those selected to receive special honors at the Indianapolis Bar Association’s annual Recognition Luncheon.

The recipients of the President’s Award for Service to the IndyBar are Kenan Farrell of KLFLegal and Jason Reyome of A. Demos & J. Reyome Counselors at Law, for their extraordinary effort to bring creative, practical and significant programming and services to the solo and small firm practice membership.

This year’s President’s Award for Service to the Profession was awarded to Caperton Task Force for their thoughtful analysis of the Caperton decision and its possible future impact on judicial campaign contributions. The members of the Caperton Task Force included A. Scott Chinn of Baker & Daniels, James Dimos of Frost Brown Todd LLC, John Kautzman of Ruckelshaus Kautzman Blackwell Bemis & Hasbrook, Kevin McGoff of Bingham McHale LLP, Jimmie “Tic Tac” McMillian of Barnes & Thornburg LLP, Hon.

The Board of Directors Award was given to David Corbitt, Krieg DeVault LLP, for his leadership as Chair of the Diversity Job Fair since its inception in 2008, which has resulted in summer job offers within the Indianapolis legal community to approximately 75 law students from diverse backgrounds.

The law firm of Baker & Daniels, LLP and Eli Lilly & Company were singled out for the Dr. John Morton Finney Jr. Award for Excellence in Legal Education for their effort in support of the Street Law program. Hosted at Shortridge Magnet High School for Law & Public Policy, the program helps high school students learn real-world application of civil law while promoting law as a career.

  1. Ah ha, so the architect of the ISC Commission to advance racial preferences and gender warfare, a commission that has no place at the inn for any suffering religious discrimination, see details http://www.theindianalawyer.com/nominees-selected-for-us-attorney-in-indiana/PARAMS/article/44263 ..... this grand architect of that institutionalized 14th amendment violation just cannot bring himself to utter the word religious discrimination, now can he: "Shepard noted two questions rise immediately from the decision. The first is how will trial courts handle allegations of racism during jury deliberations? The second is does this exception apply only to race? Shepard believes the exception to Rule 606 could also be applied to sexual orientation and gender." Thus barks the Shepard: "Race, gender, sexual orientation". But not religion, oh no, not that.

  3. Or does the study merely wish they fade away? “It just hasn’t risen substantially in decades,” Joan Williams, director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California Hastings College of the Law told Law360. “What we should be looking for is progress, and that’s not what we’re seeing.” PROGRESS = less white males in leadership. Thus the heading and honest questions here ....

  4. One need not wonder why we are importing sex slaves into North America. Perhaps these hapless victims of human trafficking were being imported for a book of play with the Royal Order of Jesters? https://medium.com/@HeapingHelping/who-are-the-royal-order-of-jesters-55ffe6f6acea Indianapolis hosts these major pervs in a big way .... https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Royal-Order-of-Jesters-National-Office/163360597025389 I wonder what affect they exert on Hoosier politics? And its judiciary? A very interesting program on their history and preferences here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtgBdUtw26c

  5. Joseph Buser, Montgomery County Chief Prosecutor, has been involved in both representing the State of Indiana as Prosecutor while filing as Representing Attorney on behalf of himself and the State of Indiana in Civil Proceedings for seized cash and merchandise using a Verified Complaint For Forfeiture of Motor Vehicle, Us Currency And Reimbursement Of Costs, as is evident in Montgomery County Circuit Court Case Number 54C01-1401-MI-000018, CCS below, seen before Judge Harry Siamas, and filed on 01/13/2014. Sheriff Mark Castille is also named. All three defendants named by summons have prior convictions under Mr. Buser, which as the Indiana Supreme Court, in the opinion of The Matter of Mark R. McKinney, No. 18S00-0905-DI-220, stated that McKinney created a conflict of interest by simultaneously prosecuting drug offender cases while pocketing assets seized from defendants in those cases. All moneys that come from forfeitures MUST go to the COMMON SCHOOL FUND.
