Veteran bankruptcy lawyer James M. Carr of the Indianapolis law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP has been appointed to a 14-year term as a bankruptcy judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

His appointment, announced Wednesday, becomes effective Jan. 1.

Carr has been a bankruptcy lawyer since 1975, practicing primarily in the areas of creditors’ rights and bankruptcy reorganization, in which he has represented interests in connection with financially distressed and liquidated businesses.

He is an adjunct professor in business reorganization law at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, where he received his law degree.

Carr replaces Judge Frank Otte, who will remain on the court in a senior capacity known as “recall status.”

Carr’s selection follows the Friday appointment of Marion Superior Court Judge Robyn Moberly as a bankruptcy judge as well.

Her 14-year term begins Thursday.

Moberly, who has served as a Marion Superior Court judge since 1996, replaces Judge Anthony J. Metz III, who is retiring.

  • need details of a trifling nature
    Just wondering, because the story does not say and yet the reporter must have this info, so how about sharing: Who appointments the judges mentioned? Are application processes involved? Were there other applicants? Does the judge who was also appointed retain the previous position as well? Info would be appreciated because I do not know the answers to my questions.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
