Indiana Attorney General's Office

Deputy Attorney General, Civil Appeals Section

Summary: The Appeals Division of the Attorney General's Office represents the State, its agencies, officers employees and interests, before the state and federal appellate courts in civil and criminal cases. The division's attorneys also represent the State before state trial courts in capital post-conviction actions and before federal district courts in habeas corpus proceedings.

Duties and Responsibilites: The Civil Appeals Section represents the interests of the State of Indiana, state agencies and state officials in appeals of civil decisions entered by state and federal trial judges and in the direct appeals to the Indiana Court of Appeals of orders of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and Workers Compensation Board. In the majority of the appeals, the state parties are Appellees; however, the section handles a significant number of cases where the state parties are the Appellants. The appeals involve the full range of legal subject matters arising from activities of Indiana state government, including but not limited to constitutional challenges to state statutes and state agency policies and rules, review of agency orders, tort matters, civil rights, employment, labor law, environmental and natural resources law, eminent domain, review of professional licensing decisions, contract matters, Title IV-D support matters, children in need of services determinations, termination of parental rights, and habeas corpus matters involving prison discipline. A Deputy Attorney General (DAG) in the section is assigned a caseload and is responsible for representing the State’s interests within the guidelines and supervision of the office. The DAG is responsible for all aspects of the appeal: confirming deadlines and scheduling, motion practice, briefing, oral argument, and post-decision review and proceedings. All representation is done in conformity with the Rules of Appellate Procedure, division style and format office policy and practices, professional rules and expectations, and all other applicable laws, standards and guidelines. The DAG is primarily responsible for the cases assigned, until an appearance is withdrawn (by office and court leave) or employment is terminated. Other duties may be assigned. Superior research (Westlaw) and writing skills are expected and persuasive written and oral appellate advocacy is essential.

Qualifications: Applicants must be admitted to the Indiana Bar, excellent written and oral communicators, able to multi-task and manage a large caseload, able to zealously advocate on behalf of the state, proficient in computer skills, including Windows, Microsoft Word and Westlaw.

The DAG is primarily responsible for the cases assigned, until an appearance is withdrawn (by office and court leave) or employment is terminated.
