Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The State Board of Law Examiners has new members this year, thanks to two appointments by the Indiana Supreme Court, as well as newly elected officers.

The Supreme Court announced Wednesday it had appointed Senior Judge Barbara L. Brugnaux, who served as a Vigo Superior judge since 1996. The judge replaces Sheila M. Corcoran of Evansville. Litigation attorney Gary Kemper of Madison replaces Bartholomew Circuit Judge Stephen R. Heinmann. Corcoran and Judge Heinmann had served on the board for 10 years.

The Board of Law Examiners also elected new officers, who began their one-year term Dec. 1, 2008. Evansville attorney Leslie C. Shively was elected president; Indianapolis attorney Jon B. Laramore was elected vice president; Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis professor Maria Pabon Lopez was elected secretary; and Gary attorney Gilbert King Jr. was elected treasurer.

The Board of Law Examiners is responsible for making sure people admitted to practice in Indiana have met the requirements specified in the Admission and Discipline Rules of the Indiana Supreme Court, including writing and grading the essay portion of the bar examination.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
