The Indiana Supreme Court will hear arguments on two cases Thursday to determine whether a health services provider is entitled to interest on payment owed for services and if a city had missed the statute of limitations to bring contamination-related claims against a company.

At 9 a.m., the high court will hear arguments on Cooper Industries, LLC, et al. v. City of South Bend and The South Bend Redevelopment Commission, No. 49A04-0511-CV-637, in which the Court of Appeals reversed the Marion Superior Court's decision of partial summary judgment allowing the city of South Bend and its redevelopment commission to pursue contamination-related claims against Cooper Industries on property the city acquired within six years before filing the lawsuit. The Court of Appeals reversed the decision because it found South Bend had known of the contamination before March 19, 1997, which was six years before the city filed the complaint, and so the statute of limitations had passed.

At 9:45 a.m., arguments will begin in Christopher R. Brown, DDS., Inc. v. Decatur County Memorial Hospital, No. 93A02-0703-EX-236. Brown had appealed the Full Worker's Compensation Board's denial of prejudgment interest on the outstanding balance owed to him as a result of medical services he provided. The Court of Appeals affirmed the denial, ruling that neither the Worker's Compensation Act nor caselaw mandates the payment of interest to a health service provider on an outstanding balance.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
