Indiana Supreme Court
Timothy W. Plank, Individually and as Personal Representative of the Estate of Debra L. Plank, Deceased v. Community Hospitals of Indiana, Inc., and State of Indiana
49S04-1203-CT-135

Indiana Court of Appeals
George Dean King v. Kay S. King, et al.
49A02-1202-MF-73
Mortgage foreclosure. Affirms trial court’s approval of the receiver’s Verified Final Accounting relating to the receivership of eight business entities founded by George W. King and the distribution of the receivership assets among his three children. The COA rejected George Dean King’s assertion that the conveyance of Crown Associates Inc. included certain inter-company accounts receivable created by the court-appointed receiver. The COA ruled the trial court did not abuse its discretion because the siblings’ settlement agreement which transferred ownership of Crown to George Dean King did not specifically mention the accounts receivable.

Criminal. Affirms 10-year sentence for nonsupport of dependent children after resentencing ordered by the Indiana Supreme Court, holding that Amir Sanjari’s sentence was not inappropriate given Sanjari’s character and that Sanjari presented no evidence that the sentence was vindictive.

Steven Engelking v. Amy Engelking
18A02-1206-DR-495

  1. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  2. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  3. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
