The Court of Appeals of Indiana will visit two Ivy Tech campuses Thursday to hear arguments in an insurance case and battery case.

A panel of judges will hear oral arguments in Estate of Bradley Kinser v. Indiana Insurance Company, No. 29A02-1009-PL-1093, at 11 a.m. April 21 at Ivy Tech-Lafayette. The hearing will be in the Ivy Hall Auditorium, Room 1333. Chief Judge Margret G. Robb, Judge Patricia A. Riley, and Judge James S. Kirsch will hear the case on appeal from Hamilton Circuit Court.

The estate of Bradley Kinser appeals the trial court’s order granting summary judgment to Indiana Insurance Company in its action seeking declaratory judgment that the damages from Kinser’s automobile accident were excluded from coverage by Kinser’s insurance policy.

Judges L. Mark Bailey, Melissa S. May, and Elaine B. Brown will hear oral arguments in Trinda Barocas v. State of Indiana, No.49A02-1007-CR-732, at 4 p.m. CDT April 21 at Ivy Tech-Evansville. The hearing will be in the Vectren Auditorium, Room 147.

In this appeal from Marion Superior Court, Trinda Barocas, a special education teacher, appeals her conviction of battery. She argues that, as a teacher, her action of flicking a student’s tongue with her finger was legally justified as a reasonably necessary disciplinary action.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
