COA to travel to Terre Haute to hear arguments

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Court of Appeals will hear arguments in Cynthia Welch v. Shawn Young, et al., at 2:30 p.m. June 23 at Indiana State University’s Tirey Hall, Tilson Auditorium. Judges John G. Baker, Edward W. Najam, Jr., and Melissa S. May will hear the case before a group of teenagers participating in Hoosier Girls State.

In the case from Tippecanoe Circuit Court, Cynthia Welch appeals the trial court’s determination that a Little League coach and a township summer recreation program were not liable for injuries Welch sustained when a baseball player taking warm-up swings before a game hit her with his bat.

The court hears oral argument at venues across the state to enable Hoosiers to learn about the judicial branch.  Members of the audience may ask questions about the judicial process in Indiana following the submission of the case. The appellate court has heard more than 300 oral arguments “on the road” at law schools, colleges, high schools, and county courthouses since its centennial in 2000-2001.  

Welch v. Young, et al., No. 79A02-1012-CT-1407, will be the court’s first oral argument heard during the annual Hoosier Girls State, a program designed to educate female high school students in Indiana about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

  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.
