Six Resolutions Approved for State Bar Association Program


Driskill, Matt, THE JOURNAL RECORD


While the Oklahoma Bar Association's 83rd annual meeting is now resigned to the history books, there's still a little news to report regarding the House of Delegates' votes on the legislative resolutions.

Of the nine total resolutions proposed to the membership, six were approved while three failed.

Those resolutions approved by the membership were the first six as contained in the OBA's program. Specifically, they were:

- The revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act.

- The Uniform Durable Power of Attorney Act.

- The amended Uniform Commercial Code regarding Article 2A-leases.

- The amendments to the Civil Procedure Code, 12 O.S. Supp. 1986, Sections 2004 and 2013.

- The resolution calling for the abolishment of the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals, which would have, if approved, removed all distinctions presently existing between civil and criminal appeals.

- The resolution calling for mandatory participation in the Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts Program. . .

Chickasha attorney Ronald Beal and Lawton attorney Robert Shulte, who tied for the Courageous Advocacy Award for the lawyer who represents possibly an unpopular case in a manner befitting the highest ideals of the profession.

Winning the award for Outstanding Pro Bono Service was Oklahoma City attorney Gary L. Betow and winning the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award for meritorius service to the profession was Sapulpa attorney Richard Woolery. . .

- Charles Ferrell, the administrative director of the courts for Oklahoma, announced his resignation this past week to Oklahoma Supreme Court Chief Justice John B. Boolin.

Ferrell has accepted a position with the UNISYS Corp. as a marketing representative for the state and local government sector of Oklahoma.

He has been the director of the courts for three years, assuming the position after having served as deputy director for two years. He was instrumental in the development and implementation of data processing and word processing technology in the trial and appellate courts of the state. …
