Indiana Court of Appeals
Tequita Ramsey v. Lightning Corporation
Civil Collection. Affirms the trial court’s judgment in decertifying the class. In this case of first impression, the COA noted it could find no logical reason to hold that a trial court may never revoke or rescind an order certifying a class. To do so would mean that once a class action is certified, the class could not be later decertified even if facts and evidence discovered afterward suggests the class should not have been certified in the first place.
Frederick L. King v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms the trial court’s judgment in sentencing Frederick King to 10 years with six years suspended to probation for robbery as a Class B felony. In a per curiam decision, the COA found the sentence was not inappropriate under Appellate Rule 7(B).
Fireworks West International, et al. v. David Prim, et al. (NFP)
Civil tort. Affirms denial of summary judgment in favor of David Prim, et al.
