Meiring officially named to head of Disciplinary Commission

The longtime leader of Indiana’s judicial ethics body is now officially the executive director of the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission.

Adrienne L. Meiring was announced as the new executive director in June, with her official appointment to come in a subsequent Indiana Supreme Court order. That order was handed down Monday.

Since the late 2000s, Meiring has served as counsel to the Indiana Judicial Qualifications/Nominating Commissions. She told The Indiana Lawyer that her new role with the Disciplinary Commission will require her to work with the state’s roughly 20,000 attorneys, compared to the roughly 1,000 judicial officers she worked with at the JQC.

Meiring told IL last month that she was in the “information gathering” phase of her transition to the commission. She said she hopes to focus on lawyer education efforts that help prevent ethical violations.

Meiring succeeds G. Michael Witte, who retired as head of the Disciplinary Commission in February. Senior Jude Robert B. Mrzlack has been serving as interim executive director.
