Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The intersection of religion, race, and the law will be discussed from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Indiana State Capitol Building. The free event is sponsored by Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis and The Church Federation of Greater Indianapolis.

Judges, church leaders, and a law professor will discuss the question, "What does it mean to have our first Hispanic-Latina Supreme Court member, Justice Sonia Sotomayor?"

The featured speaker is Myra C. Selby, a former Indiana Supreme Court justice and the first African-American to be named to that position. She is now a partner at Ice Miller in downtown Indianapolis.

Other panelists include Indiana Supreme Court Justice Brent Dickson; Lake Circuit Judge Lorenzo Arredondo; Marion Superior Judge David Shaheed; Henry C. Karlson, professor of law emeritus, I.U. School of Law - Indianapolis; Rev. Dr. Huberto Pimentel, Hispanic Ministries, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); and Rev. Dr. Felipe Martinez, Whitewater Valley Presbytery.

A tour of the Supreme Court chamber from 3 to 4 p.m. will precede the program. Simultaneous Spanish translation will be provided. Free parking is available in the parking lot to the north of the Capitol building.

  1. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  2. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  3. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  4. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.

  5. Fiat justitia ruat caelum is a Latin legal phrase, meaning "Let justice be done though the heavens fall." The maxim signifies the belief that justice must be realized regardless of consequences.
