Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

After a year of preparation, Marion Superior Juvenile Judge Marilyn Moores left for an 11-month mission to Afghanistan to help rebuild the war-torn country’s farming and agricultural infrastructure.

Presiding over the juvenile court since 2005, Judge Moores is a lieutenant colonel with the Indiana National Guard. She left Sept. 25 for the mission in the Khost province, south of Kabul. She is expected to return in August 2011, and the judge began a leave of absence in the early summer when training began at Camp Atterbury.

In Judge Moores’ 25-year military career, she has never had a chance to serve overseas. She said previously she was eager for this opportunity, as it presented a chance to make peace and not fight the war. The judge is part of the third of five agribusiness teams that have traveled there, and her agricultural experience comes from her personal background in agriculture and horse farming. A 36-person security force is accompanying the team.

Juvenile Magistrate Gary Chavers is presiding in her absence.

  2. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  3. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  4. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  5. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.
