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. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  2. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  3. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  4. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.

  5. Dear Fan, let me help you correct the title to your post. "ACLU is [Left] most of the time" will render it accurate. Just google it if you doubt that I am, err, "right" about this: "By the mid-1930s, Roger Nash Baldwin had carved out a well-established reputation as America’s foremost civil libertarian. He was, at the same time, one of the nation’s leading figures in left-of-center circles. Founder and long time director of the American Civil Liberties Union, Baldwin was a firm Popular Fronter who believed that forces on the left side of the political spectrum should unite to ward off the threat posed by right-wing aggressors and to advance progressive causes. Baldwin’s expansive civil liberties perspective, coupled with his determined belief in the need for sweeping socioeconomic change, sometimes resulted in contradictory and controversial pronouncements. That made him something of a lightning rod for those who painted the ACLU with a red brush." http://www.harvardsquarelibrary.org/biographies/roger-baldwin-2/ "[George Soros underwrites the ACLU' which It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board." http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1237 "The creation of non-profit law firms ushered in an era of progressive public interest firms modeled after already established like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ("NAACP") and the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU") to advance progressive causes from the environmental protection to consumer advocacy." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cause_lawyering
