IPBC exec director's last day Friday

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
Friday will be Monica Fennell's last day as executive director of the Indiana Pro Bono Commission - at least until she returns next August. Fennell will be in Washington, D.C., for a one-year fellowship with the U.S. Supreme Court in the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Her replacement for a one-year fellowship of her own is Trischa Zorn-Hudson.

Zorn-Hudson has already been working with Fennell, and her first full day will be July 23.

"I know that the Pro Bono Commission and its district programs will benefit from Trischa's energy and enthusiasm for helping others and for access to justice," Fennell wrote in an e-mail she sent to those she worked with in her capacity as executive director. "I will miss all of you and look forward to working with you when I return from Washington, D.C., in August 2008."

Zorn-Hudson graduated from Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis in 2005. She was a teacher in Indianapolis and planned to use her law degree to be a youth advocate, according to IUPUI's Web site about notable alumni. She is also the most decorated Paralympian in the history of the Paralympic Games. She has 55 swimming medals - 41 of them gold - and holds eight world records. Zorn-Hudson's office is at the Indiana Bar Foundation, 230 E. Ohio St., Indianapolis. She can be reached at (317) 269-2415 or tzorn@inbf.org.

Indiana Lawyer reported about Fennell's fellowship in the June 13 issue: "A Supreme Opportunity: Director of IPBC to start fellowship in August."

  1. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
