Morgan Appointed to Seventh Circuit's Advisory Committee on Circuit Rules

Donnie Morgan has been appointed to a three-year term on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit’s Advisory Committee on Circuit Rules. He is one of six practicing attorneys drawn from across the Circuit to serve on the committee. The committee serves as a forum for studying the court’s rules and procedures, serves as a conduit between members of the bar and the court, and recommends amendments of the Circuit Rules to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. It is presently chaired by Judge Edmond E. Chang.

Morgan is a member of Taft’s appellate practice and its public-law team. He has experience at all levels of the federal and Indiana judicial systems—including work on appeals before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Indiana Supreme Court. He has served as lead counsel for parties or amici in dozens of appeals and served as the principal briefing author in others. He presently serves on the board of governors for the Seventh Circuit Bar Association, the Indianapolis Bar Association’s board of directors, and the Section 1983 subcommittee of the Seventh Circuit’s Committee on Pattern Civil Jury Instructions. Before joining Taft, Morgan served as the City of Indianapolis’s litigation chief and later as its corporation counsel.
