Editorial: IndyBar - Your Source for Information

By Julie Armstrong, Executive Director

Back in the day, even before I joined the IndyBar staff, there was a singular method for communicating with our members. Known as the Bulletin, it was a printed elongated postcard readily identified for its unique size and concise information. It was the most recognizable and convenient way to know what was going on at the Bar.

Over time growth in IndyBar programs and services and the development of new technology made it beneficial to utilize a variety of other communication tools. Some of those resources include: The Indiana Lawyer, www.indybar.org, print brochures, Facebook, and Twitter. The focus of each of these new tools is essentially the same as the old Bulletin – what’s happening at the IndyBar. Today we’re adding yet another tool for providing information by launching the IndyBar blog at www.indybar.org.

For those unfamiliar with blogs they’re essentially an online diary of thoughts and information for open sharing with those taking the time to read to the blog. The IndyBar’s blog is intended to share news of new laws, post articles of common interest, and comment on information unique to our legal community. Don’t want to have the headache of remembering to check the blog? No problem. Follow Indybar on Twitter. The daily blog posting will be tweeted so you can determine at a glance if there’s information of interest.

Consider our blog as a quick, yet useful glance in your day. Rarely will the posting extend beyond two paragraphs. If you find yourself still reading it will be because you found the links we may provide to be useful.

You’re also encouraged to provide information for the blog. Your help in suggesting blogs for linking to our own is also appreciated. The more information provided the better.

What we don’t want to do with the blog is become narrow in our focus, political in our nature or stale in our content. It’s a diary of ideas and information which we hope will promote thought and additional personal research.

Schedule a moment to check out the blog. It won’t hurt, and it might help. Who knows, you might even find your name in a posting.•

  1. Nice work, Courtney!

  2. The O'Banions also sued Ford claiming the Roush vehicle's throttle cable was defective and stuck, and did not present evidence or argue to the contrary at trial. The proceedings were delayed by an appeal on the admissibility of expert testimony in which O' Banions also joined with the Roush Estate.

  3. AP writes "The justices will hear the appeal of the Colorado baker that pits his claims of religious freedom against the rights of the same-sex couple who wanted a wedding cake to commemorate their marriage." HOW ABOUT IF THIS WERE THIS ISSUE: "The justices will hear the appeal of the Colorado Jewish videographer that pits his claims of religious freedom against the rights of the Holocaust deniers who wanted to hire his photography studio to shoot their documentary debunking the six-million-cremated-theory ..." Would anyone doubt that the Jewish fellow's rights triumphed? Or how about "The justices will hear the appeal of the Colorado black carpenter that pits his claims of religious freedom against the rights of a white supremacist who wants a gallows built on his property to stage the mock hanging of former president Obama." Hey, would anyone doubt that the Black fellow's rights to contract triumphed? BUT ... make the "villain" in the story Christian conservatives (insert two minute hate here) and the victims gay (so cute they are), and it is bar the door Katie, for Big Brother's judicial stormtroopers simply must weigh in to wash clean the minds of any who would DARE to dissent from the elists' mandated spiritus mundi.

  4. The voices of the prophets are more on blogs than subway walls these days, Dawn. Here is the voice of one calling out in the wilderness ... against a corrupted judiciary ... that remains corrupt a decade and a half later ... due to, so sadly, the acquiescence of good judges unwilling to shake the forest ... for fear that is not faith .. http://www.ogdenonpolitics.com/2013/09/prof-alan-dershowitz-on-indiana.html

  5. So I purchased a vehicle cash from the lot on West Washington in Feb 2017. Since then I found it the vehicle had been declared a total loss and had sat in a salvage yard due to fire. My title does not show any of that. I also have had to put thousands of dollars into repairs because it was not a solid vehicle like they stated. I need to find out how to contact the lawyers on this lawsuit.
