Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
Attorneys are already coveting a spot at a September conference on the relationship between Congress and the courts, which will include an appearance by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. and multiple other well-known jurists and public officials.

However, registration doesn't begin until Thursday.

Limited to the first 150, the Sept. 14 conference titled "Relations between Congress and the Federal Courts" is sponsored by the Indiana State Bar Association. Justice Alito will be the keynote speaker; joining him will the chief judges and others in each of Indiana's federal District courts, Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, and lawmakers such as former U.S. Sen. Daniel R. Coats, and U.S. Reps. Baron Hill, Brad Ellsworth, and Mike Pence. Law school professors, incoming dean Gary Roberts at the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, and ISBA president Richard Eynon will also speak.

Topics at the daylong conference will include the process for nominating federal judges, judicial activism, judges' pay, impeachment, and congressional efforts to limit court jurisdiction. Attendees will be able to receive Continuing Legal Education credit.

The event will be in the Wynne Courtroom of Inlow Hall at IU School of Law-Indianapolis. According to the ISBA, members will receive notice about the registration via an e-newsletter to be sent Thursday. The form will also be available on the bar association's Web site at www.inbar.org.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
