Indiana Court of Appeals
Auto-Owners Insurance Company v. Gary Hughes
Civil. Reverses and remands entry of judgment in favor of appellee-plaintiff Gary Hughes on his contract claim in the amount of $166,792.83. Auto-Owners contends, inter alia, that the trial court erred in denying its summary judgment motion on the basis that Hughes’ suit was barred by a one-year limitation in the relevant insurance policy.
James Taylor and Nancy Taylor v. Ford Motor Co., et al.
Civil. Affirms trial court’s grant of defendants’ motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. In their appeal, the Taylors argued the trial court did have subject matter jurisdiction. The Taylors filed a claim Feb. 12, 2009, that the defendants’ negligence caused James Taylor’s injuries which in turn caused his wife to lose the services of her husband. The defendants filed a motion to dismiss on March 26, 2010, claiming that the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction of the Taylors’ claims because Indiana’s worker’s compensation laws provided the exclusive remedy.

Civil. Affirms trial court’s denial of Price’s request for attorney’s fees from appellee-respondent K.M.K., following K.M.K.’s action against A.K., which the trial court dismissed.
Denise Tinsley v. Marion T., LLC, et al. (NFP)
