Senior Judge Robert Miller Jr

At the time of his death on Sept. 20, McKinney had 250 pending civil cases and 27 pending criminal cases. While most cases will be reassigned to judges in the Southern District of Indiana, additional assistance is needed.
Miller will accept a continual docket of 50 cases in the Southern District. His inherited caseload includes a complex multidistrict litigation case that has multiple pending post-judgement motions.
Appointed by President Ronald Reagan and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Miller has been a judge for the Northern District of Indiana since 1985. He served as chief judge from 2003 through 2010 and assumed senior status Jan. 11, 2016.

Judge Larry J. McKinney Dead

Senior U.S. District Judge Larry J. McKinney has died at age 73.   Our condolences to his family, friends and associates.  

Judge McKinney, being a central figure in our legal story, this event is likely to lengthen the time to conclusion.  However in this story involving humans and many moving parts, it is hard to tell how the outcome will be eventually affected.  Although it likely will.

ICM

ICM
ICM Inc. is one of the most recognized names in ethanol, and now it wants to carry over its vast service knowledge and experience into biodiesel. About 60 percent of North American ethanol plants employ ICM process technology, says Debbie Harding, ICM’s marketing manager. 

The company already provides behind-the-scenes benefits to biodiesel producers with nearly 50 percent of the market in distillers corn oil (DCO) extraction technology, increasing availability of lower-cost feedstock to biodiesel producers. ICM’s corn oil extraction design employs a horizontal three-phase decanter, or tricanter, design. “We’ve had buyers of distillers corn oil say they prefer to get it from ICM systems because the product is more consistent,” says Brock Beach, ICM’s vice president of sales and marketing. ICM has also helped increase extraction rates. “We started with a base tricanter system,” Beach says. “That recovered 0.5 to 0.6 pounds per bushel. Then we added our Selective Milling Technology that increased recovery by 5 percent. Our Fiber Separation Technology added another 10 percent bump in corn oil. ICM’s Thin Stillage Solid Separation System (TS4) provided another increase. And at the end of the line, we have our gen 1.5 corn fiber to ethanol process. So now, in all, our systems can recover up to 1.2 pounds of DCO per bushel.”

Nothin Honey

Just to let you know I continue to consume oxygen and exhale CO2, I just checked Pacer and SEC and see nothing to report.  I checked DVG in Pacer and he is still in this. 


I drove through downtown Atlanta Tuesday night and that place continues to generate traffic faster than it can lay asphalt.  And it is laying a lot of asphalt.

Back in the Saddle

Here is update on docket. The last two dated the 18th are new.  Still do not understand why DVG was specifically excluded from related Ethanol Company filings in last post.
