NEWS FROM THE FACULTY
Professor Doug Boshkoff
recently spoke to the Bankruptcy Section of the Indiana State Bar Association. His topic was "The Impact of Eleventh Amendment Immunity on the Effectiveness of Bankruptcy Proceedings."
Professor Fred Cate
was elected to the Board of Directors of Phi Beta Kappa Associates, the philanthropic and fund-raising arm of Phi Beta Kappa International.
Professor Cate also has written two books, Privacy in the Information Age and The Internet and the First Amendment, that have been selected for the Outstanding Academic Books list by the Association of College and Research Libraries. The list will appear in CHOICE in January and includes only about three percent of all academic books. It is apparently very unusual to have two books on the list by the same author in the same year. Congratulations Fred!

THE ARTS ON TRIAL
Federal Judge Sarah Evans Barker will preside at a mock trial based on the hypothetical premise of establishing an arts center to replace Market Square Arena. The mock trial is scheduled as part of the 1998 Spirit & Place Festival, which will occur November 13-16 at various locations throughout Indianapolis. The mock trial and all festival events will be free and open to the public.
The story line: With the coming of a new sports center, the City of Indianapolis decides to demolish Market Square Arena and announces that it has put together a package of public and private funds to build a contemporary arts center on the site. A group of citizens sue the City, claiming that use of public money for an arts facility is inappropriate, that the City's arts market is already saturated, and that the building would constitute a public nuisance. The City of Indianapolis argues for support based on its downtown redevelopment effort.
Several of Indy's leading trial lawyers will participate, including Ed DeLaney, Linda Pence, Sandra D. Leek, and Robert Wagner. The mock trial is scheduled for November 14 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Laikin Auditorium at the Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center, 6701 Hoover Road. For more information on Spirit & Place events, contact The Polis Center at 317-274-2455 or visit http://www.polis.iupui.edu.
