Former St. Joseph County Superior Court judge and former chief judge of the Indiana Court of Appeals Sanford “Sandy” Brook will return to South Bend Oct. 24 to perform in the one-man play, “An Evening with Clarence Darrow.”
The play, written by David Ritnels and based on the writings of the famed defense attorney Clarence Darrow, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. at the Bendix Theater in the Century Center in downtown South Bend. The event is sponsored by the St. Joseph County Bar Association for the benefit of the St. Joseph Bar Foundation.
At intermission, the bar foundation will honor Judges Robert L. Miller Jr., U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Indiana, and Jane Woodward Miller, St. Joseph Superior Court, for their contributions to the Indiana High School Mock Trial program as well as to the John Adams High School Mock Trial team. Also, the foundation will honor Scott Keller of Anderson Agostino & Keller P.C. in South Bend for his work with the mock trial program since its inception.
Brook joined the Judicial Arbiter Group, based in Denver, Colo., in 2004. He is one of 20 former state and federal judges who compose the JAG and he performs both mediation and arbitration services. In a 2006 survey of the Colorado bar, Brook was named one of the top 10 mediators in the state.
