In one of his last official acts as governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels appointed judges to the Vanderburgh and Marion Superior courts. When the two judges will assume their new duties has not been determined.

Gary Miller will replace Judge Robyn Moberly on the Marion Superior Court bench. Moberly was named a bankruptcy judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana in October and was sworn in Nov. 1.

Miller has experience in the Marion Superior Court, serving 18 years as judge in the criminal and civil divisions. He is a founding partner of the general law practice of Miller Myer LLP and currently sits as senior judge in Putnam, Boone, Johnson and Shelby counties.

He graduated from Indiana University in 1977 and earned his law degree from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 1980.

Leslie Curtis Shively has been appointed judge of the Vanderburgh Superior Court. He replaces Judge David Kiely, who was elected in November to replace retiring Judge Carl Heldt at the Vanderburgh Circuit Court.

This is Shively’s first judicial appointment. He has been a practicing attorney for over 32 years, currently serving as the principal attorney at Shively & Associates. Also, for the past 12 years he has acted as a hearing officer in attorney disciplinary proceedings. From 2001 to 2011, he served as a member of the Indiana State Board of Law Examiners and was president of the board for two years.

He holds both an undergraduate degree and master’s degree from Indiana University. He earned his law degree from I.U. McKinney School of Law in 1980.

  1. The practitioners and judges who hail E-filing as the Saviour of the West need to contain their respective excitements. E-filing is federal court requires the practitioner to cram his motion practice into pigeonholes created by IT people. Compound motions or those seeking alternative relief are effectively barred, unless the practitioner wants to receive a tart note from some functionary admonishing about the "problem". E-filing is just another method by which courts and judges transfer their burden to practitioners, who are the really the only powerless components of the system. Of COURSE it is easier for the court to require all of its imput to conform to certain formats, but this imposition does NOT improve the quality of the practice of law and does NOT improve the ability of the practitioner to advocate for his client or to fashion pleadings that exactly conform to his client's best interests. And we should be very wary of the disingenuous pablum about the costs. The courts will find a way to stick it to the practitioner. Lake County is a VERY good example of this rapaciousness. Any one who does not believe this is invited to review the various special fees that system imposes upon practitioners- as practitioners- and upon each case ON TOP of the court costs normal in every case manually filed. Jurisprudence according to Aldous Huxley.

  2. Any attorneys who practice in federal court should be able to say the same as I can ... efiling is great. I have been doing it in fed court since it started way back. Pacer has its drawbacks, but the ability to hit an e-docket and pull up anything and everything onscreen is a huge plus for a litigator, eps the sole practitioner, who lacks a filing clerk and the paralegal support of large firms. Were I an Indiana attorney I would welcome this great step forward.

  3. Can we get full disclosure on lobbyist's payments to legislatures such as Mr Buck? AS long as there are idiots that are disrespectful of neighbors and intent on shooting fireworks every night, some kind of regulations are needed.

  4. I am the mother of the child in this case. My silence on the matter was due to the fact that I filed, both in Illinois and Indiana, child support cases. I even filed supporting documentation with the Indiana family law court. Not sure whether this information was provided to the court of appeals or not. Wish the case was done before moving to Indiana, because no matter what, there is NO WAY the state of Illinois would have allowed an appeal on a child support case!
