"Schools, Politics and the Courts: The Case that Divided a City": A Dramatic Interpretation of Actual Events

On Wednesday, Feb. 12, federal agencies in Indianapolis will sponsor their annual Black History Month Celebration. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana will host the event at 2 pm in the Hon. S. Hugh Dillin Memorial Courtroom (courtroom 243), located at the Birch Bayh Federal Building & United States Courthouse, 46 E. Ohio St., downtown Indianapolis.

This year’s program features members of the sponsoring agencies performing a dramatic interpretation of the Indianapolis Public Schools desegregation and busing case, which was assigned case number IP-68-C-225. The presentation includes testimony by characters based on actual litigants, witnesses and concerned citizens.

The performance will be followed by remarks by Magistrate Judge Denise K. LaRue. Judge LaRue was appointed as magistrate judge in 2011, filling a new judgeship created by the Judicial Conference of the United States. Prior to her appointment, Judge LaRue was a partner at the firm of Haskin & LaRue.

The program will last one hour, and approval of 1 hour of CLE credit is pending. Pre-registration is NOT required.

The program is free and open to the public. For further details, please contact Doria Lynch at 317.229.3729 or doria_lynch@insd.uscourts.gov.
