The Indiana Court of Appeals will hear arguments at Vincennes University Thursday in a case that seeks to determine who is responsible to pay costs and expenses related to environmental contamination.

In P.R. Mallory & Co., Inc., et al., v. American Casualty Co., et al., No. 54A01-0903-CV-142, the trial court granted summary judgment in favor of American Casualty Co. and other defendants in P.R. Mallory & Co.'s suit maintaining that the defendants were obligated to pay for expenses for environmental pollution cleanup, and on the claims of breach of contract or anticipatory breach of contract. The trial court ruled the plaintiffs provided late notice to American Casualty and the other defendants under the insurance policies.

P.R. Mallory argues the trial court erred in granting summary judgment; the defendants contend P.R. Mallory's appeal is untimely and should be dismissed.

Judges L. Mark Bailey, Elaine Brown, and Edward Najam will hear the arguments in the case from Montgomery Circuit Court at 11 a.m. in Shircliff Auditorium on the campus of Vincennes University.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
