COA to hear arguments at college

Back to TopE-mailPrint

As a part of its "Appeals on Wheels" initiative, a panel of Indiana Court of Appeals judges will visit St. Mary-of-the-Woods College Nov. 17 to hear arguments in a medical malpractice suit.

Judges L. Mark Bailey, Melissa May, and Nancy Vaidik will hear Anna Williams, et al. v. M. Jayme Adelsperger, D.D.S., No. 49A05-0905-CV-260. The Williams family filed suit in December 2004 against Dr. M. Jayme Adelsperger alleging malpractice through August 2002. The trial court granted summary judgment for Adelsperger on the grounds the suit wasn't brought within the statute of limitations.

The Williamses argue the statute of limitations shouldn't be applied to them because even though they suspected malpractice as early as 2003, the doctor actively denied Anna Williams' symptoms were related to her treatment.

Arguments begin at 10:30 a.m. EST in the Conservatory of Music on campus in St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
