Attorney General Todd Rokita’s litigation team wins 100% of jury trials on state’s behalf in 2023

Provide peace of mind to citizens who want to see justice prevail

                                   

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita congratulated members of his office’s litigation team, which won 100 percent of the eight jury trials in which it defended the state’s interests in 2023.

“To achieve a 100 percent success rate in these proceedings demonstrates both the integrity of the entities we defend and the skills of the lawyers working at this office,” Attorney General Rokita said. “Not only do these wins save money for Indiana taxpayers, but they also provide peace of mind to citizens who want to see justice prevail.”

As the State of Indiana’s law firm, the Office of Attorney General’s dedicated litigators represent the state and its agencies, officials, elected leaders, and employees in a wide variety of legal proceedings — including federal and state jury trials. Every day, the office fights to protect the legal interests of the state and its citizens and defend the rule of law.

By securing the state’s legal victories in all of its federal and state jury trials, Attorney General Rokita’s government litigation team saved Hoosier taxpayers well into the six figures, said Chief Counsel of Litigation Patricia Erdmann.

Besides the jury trial wins, the team also has saved millions through ongoing successful advocacy and motion practice in other cases. Working under Erdmann, Section Chief Adrienne Pope oversees government litigation.

Attorney General Rokita thanked both Erdmann and Pope for their strong leadership and effective oversight of litigation strategy and jury trial arguments.

“Hoosiers can rest assured they are in good hands when it comes to the professional litigators representing their state government in legal matters,” Attorney General Rokita said. “I am proud every day to work with individuals who serve this state with servants’ hearts.”
