Justice Frank Sullivan joining McKinney School of Law

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Justice Frank Sullivan will leave the Indiana Supreme Court to teach business law and corporate finance at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.

The South Bend native will begin teaching in the fall of 2012, but hasn’t specified when he’ll actually leave the court.

“Having Frank Sullivan join our faculty is an exciting and extraordinary opportunity to bring in someone with a great mind and academic temperament to teach our students both theory and practice and to add to our scholarly culture,” said Dean Gary Roberts.  “At the same time Justice (soon to be Professor) Sullivan can connect the school more firmly with the practicing bar and bench through his extraordinary reputation and his extensive experience as a practicing lawyer, state budget director and Supreme Court justice.  This is truly a unique and special hire for the IU McKinney School of Law.”

Sullivan has been on the court since Nov. 1, 1993, after his appointment by Gov. Evan Bayh. Prior to his appointment to the court, Sullivan served as state budget director (1989-1992) and executive assistant for fiscal policy to Bayh in 1993, during which time he directed the preparation of the Bayh administration’s budget proposals and oversaw implementation of state budgets passed by the Legislature. Prior to state service, he practiced corporate finance and securities law in the Indianapolis office of Barnes & Thornburg. Sullivan served on the staff of former U.S. Rep. John Brademas from 1974 to 1979, ultimately assuming the position of staff director.

He is a 1982 graduate of Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

  1. Bob Leonard killed two people named Jennifer and Dion Longworth. There were no Smiths involved.

  2. Being on this journey from the beginning has convinced me the justice system really doesn't care about the welfare of the child. The trial court judge knew the child belonged with the mother. The father having total disregard for the rules of the court. Not only did this cost the mother and child valuable time together but thousands in legal fees. When the child was with the father the mother paid her child support. When the child was finally with the right parent somehow the father got away without having to pay one penny of child support. He had to be in control. Since he withheld all information regarding the child's welfare he put her in harms way. Mother took the child to the doctor when she got sick and was totally embarrassed she knew nothing regarding the medical information especially the allergies, The mother texted the father (from the doctors office) and he replied call his attorney. To me this doesn't seem like a concerned father. Seeing the child upset when she had to go back to the father. What upset me the most was finding out the child sleeps with him. Sometimes in the nude. Maybe I don't understand all the rules of the law but I thought this was also morally wrong. A concerned parent would allow the child to finish the school year. Say goodbye to her friends. It saddens me to know the child will not have contact with the sisters, aunts, uncles and the 87 year old grandfather. He didn't allow it before. Only the mother is allowed to talk to the child. I don't think now will be any different. I hope the decision the courts made would've been the same one if this was a member of their family. Someday this child will end up in therapy if allowed to remain with the father.

  3. Ok attorney Straw ... if that be a good idea ... And I am not saying it is ... but if it were ... would that be ripe prior to her suffering an embarrassing remand from the Seventh? Seems more than a tad premature here soldier. One putting on the armor should not boast liked one taking it off.

  4. The judge thinks that she is so cute to deny jurisdiction, but without jurisdiction, she loses her immunity. She did not give me any due process hearing or any discovery, like the Middlesex case provided for that lawyer. Because she has refused to protect me and she has no immunity because she rejected jurisdiction, I am now suing her in her district.

  5. Sam Bradbury was never a resident of Lafayette he lived in rural Tippecanoe County, Thats an error.
