Indiana Law - More on: Some thoughts on HJR 3: The time to speak out is now

Updating this ILB post from Jan. 15th, where the ILB wrote:

What, I wondered, was the position of the Indiana State Bar Association, and the position of local groups, such as the Indianapolis Bar Association, on HJR 3? The ISBA and IndyBar speak out on many matters and represent many of us. What are their positions with respect to amending our Indiana Constitution's Bill of Rights to include a ban against same sex marriage, and to prohibit "a legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals."

I contacted the Indianapolis Bar Association at mid-day yesterday and they responded promptly. Jeff Abrams, IndyBar President: "The Association is surveying its members to provide insight into the most desirous role or position we might take. We anticipate knowing more next week."

The ILB has learned that this Saturday, Jan. 18th, the Indianapolis Bar Association Board of Directors sent out a questionnaire to all its members, on the issue of HJR 3. Responses are due by this Friday, January 24 at 5:00 p.m.
