Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

The Ball & Biscuit, a bar that was still under construction when owner and Baker & Daniels attorney Trevor Belden spoke with Indiana Lawyer in the spring, had its soft opening at 331 Massachusetts Ave. in Indianapolis June 24.

The bar is different from most of the other bars in the trendy downtown neighborhood because there are no TVs; it is non-smoking; it offers signature Prohibition-era cocktails, craft beers, and boutique wines; and it has more of a lounge feel than other its neighbors, Belden said. It also has a limited menu in terms of food, with only seven or eight small plates.

“The soft openings have gone very well and so far the Biscuit seems to be striking the right chord with folks,” Belden said via e-mail. “I definitely hope downtown lawyers put it on their list of after work gathering places.”

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
