About Libby

Libby represents counties, cities, towns, and other public entities before administrative agencies, trial courts, and appellate courts.  She has appeared and represented clients in over half of Indiana’s 92 counties, as well as before the Indiana Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.  Libby works directly with municipalities, and also works with insurance carriers and claims administrators to serve as insurance defense counsel.

Libby has substantial experience in defending civil rights claims filed against public entities, public employees, and elected officials.  She has represented clients in cases involving:

  • Search and seizure claims
  • Use of force by law enforcement
  • False arrest claims
  • Deaths and injuries occurring in county jails
  • First Amendment free speech claims made by employees against public officials and municipal entities
  • Employment discrimination, retaliation, and harassment claims
  • Equal protection and due process claims
  • Police and Fire merit board matters and related employee benefit claims
  • Personal injury, property damage, and wrongful death claims relating to road design and maintenance, premises liability, and general negligence.

Away from the office, Libby dedicates a significant amount of time to organizations that support local education and community law enforcement efforts.  She is an avid runner and is well on her way to running a full marathon in all 50 states.  Her commitment to the community and to running is only rivaled by her commitment to eat at least one cookie every day.
