Ind. Courts - Appeals Court Judge Elaine Brown featured

With the naming of Judge Pyle, Judge Elaine Brown is no longer the newest member of the Indiana Court of Appeals. Tyler D. Helmond, Voyles Zahn & Paul, authored this interview, posted by the Indianapolis Bar Association. A sample:

Q: Speaking of art, what are your feelings on including (relevant) diagrams and pictures in appellate briefs?

A: I think that any demonstrative figure that helps to make a point clearer or more vivid should be used. I’ve seen Justice Breyer use a diagram in one of his concurring opinions, Judge Posner uses them in his opinions, and they have been used to illustrate points in a few of our appellate opinions. As long as they are accurate depictions, I find them helpful.
