Professor Orentlicher Offers Commentary on Former State Schools Superintendent Ethics Charges


Tony Bennett, former Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, has hired two lawyers from one of the state’s largest law firms to defend him against ethics charges. IU McKinney Professor David Orentlicher offered commentary on the move in a story by the Associated Press, published January 9, 2014.

Bennett has hired Larry Mackey and Jason Barclay of Indianapolis-based Barnes & Thornburg to represent him before the State Ethics Commission. Mackey earned a national reputation in the Oklahoma City bombing case when he prosecuted Timothy McVeigh, and Barclay helped draft a 2005 overhaul of the state’s ethics regulations in 2005.

Professor Orentlicher is co-director of the Hall Center for Law and Health and a Samuel R. Rosen Professor of Law. He served in the Indiana House of Representatives from 2002 to 2008.
