Fifteen projects in 18 Indiana counties are receiving grants from the Indiana Supreme Court aimed at family court projects, including Madison and Parke counties that are the newest to joint the effort that's been in place since 1999.

The state's highest court announced today that for 2010, it was awarding $257,000 in grant money to 15 projects statewide. Marion County is getting the most money, followed by Clark, Madison, Allen and Tippecanoe counties. A full list can be found online at the state judiciary's website at www.in.gov/judiciary.

The goal of the project is to create a coordinated approach for families with multiple cases pending before multiple judges, and develop court models that can best serve children and families. More than $2.2 million has been awarded to 23 family courts statewide since the project began.

"I am proud to work with these judges.... They are leaders in finding better ways to help families navigate the legal system," Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard said in a news release.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
