[ATG] Attorney General’s Office argues for State legal authority

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – A court today heard the Attorney General’s motion to strike the appearances and filings of outside attorneys whom the AG contends cannot represent the State of Indiana in the lawsuit Ritz v. State Board of Education.  As the lawyer for state government, Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s Office argued on behalf of state legal authority that the appearances and filings of the various other counsel are unauthorized and invalid.  Judge Louis Rosenberg in Marion County Circuit Court took the motion to strike under advisement and will rule later.  Attorney General Zoeller issued this statement:

“The only issue before the court is whether an attorney can represent the State of Indiana without the consent of the Attorney General.  My office is not adverse to any of our clients but we are only defending the well-established case law that helps avoid the disputes in the Statehouse from coming before the judicial branch of government,” Zoeller said.

At issue today was the motion filed by the Attorney General’s Office to strike the appearances and filings of the DOE in-house attorneys for the plaintiff.   Deputy Attorney General David Arthur argued the case today for Zoeller and the Attorney General’s Office.   The Attorney General has filed a separate motion to strike the appearance and filing of a private attorney for one of the Board of Education defendants, but the Court has not conducted a hearing on that motion yet.
