COA in Carmel to hear appeal of sanctions

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Court of Appeals visits Carmel High School Thursday to hear arguments in a case stemming from a propane gas explosion.

Chief Judge John G. Baker and Judges Ezra Friedlander and Terry Crone will hear arguments in White-Rodgers, et al. v. Lonnie Kindle, et al., No. 55A05-0906-CV-308, at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of the high school, 520 E. Main St., Carmel.

White-Rodgers and other defendants are appealing the trial court's imposition of more than $18,000 in sanctions for alleged discovery noncompliance, as well as the merits of the underlying discovery orders preceding the sanction award.

White-Rodgers and others were sued by Lonnie Kindle and others who were involved in the 2004 explosion at an apartment in Morgan County. The plaintiffs' complaints were for strict products liability and negligent design of a water heater control because they believed there was a defect in the gas control valve on the water heater.

The sanctions stem from White-Rodgers' noncompliance in producing materials from a Missouri case against the company involving a propane gas explosion and a water heater with a White-Rodgers gas control valve.

  1. Here an atheist worries about the Indiana rules, when the real and demonstrated problems are (1) anti-Christian bias and (2) a refusal to follow their own rules as to the Indiana Board of Law Examiners! Such sweet, sweet irony! See, e.g. https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert and https://www.scribd.com/doc/312841269/Thomas-More-Society-Amicus-Brown-v-Ind-Bd-of-Law-Examiners

  2. Child Advocates profited over 6 million last year alone. They are bullies & do not act in children's best interests but rather their own. They placed my children full time with their unlicensed alcoholic father despite recommendations for over 5 yrs. Meanwhile my children have medical conditions left untreated living with their father and their education has suffered greatly. Get these people terminated!!!
