Ind. Law - "HB 1411 – You want citations with that judicial opinion? It’ll cost ya."
Court staff attorney pilot program. Creates the circuit and superior court staff attorney pilot program (pilot program) to provide assistance to courts with preparing orders for complex motions. Requires the judicial center to administer the pilot program and to report to the commission on courts (commission) concerning the pilot program. Requires the commission to receive reports concerning the pilot program, and allows the commission to make recommendations and to propose legislation concerning the pilot program.ILB: I have another issue with the bill -- I think it violates the separation of powers between the legislative and judicial branches and would set a bad precedent for the future, at least insofar as the judicial branch is concerned. If this is okay, then why not a bill requiring cameras in the trial courts?
