Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Court of Appeals hits the road Tuesday and Wednesday to hear arguments at two universities involving a negligence suit against a hospital and nurse and whether a casino can ban someone after he's been kicked out.

Judges L. Mark Bailey, Terry Crone, and Margret Robb will visit DePauw University in Greencastle Tuesday to hear arguments in a Marion Superior negligence case against a nurse and Indiana University. In George A. Scott v. Malissa Elizabeth Retz, R.N., and Indiana University, No. 49A05-0904-CV-192, George Scott sued Malissa Retz and Indiana University alleging negligence and negligence by reason of respondeat superior and negligent retention. Scott, a Clarian Health Partners' Safety and Security Investigator, was hit by an uncapped, used syringe while investigating missing narcotics at Indiana University Hospital in Indianapolis.

Scott appeals the grant of Retz's and the university's motion for summary judgment; I.U. cross appeals the striking of part of an affidavit that contained a statement alleged to be hearsay. Arguments begin at 10 a.m. in the Walden Inn and Conference Center, 2 W. Seminary St., Greencastle.

On Wednesday, Judges L. Mark Bailey, James Kirsch and Edward Najam travel to Indiana University - Southeast in New Albany to hear a suit in which Thomas Donovan sued Grand Victoria Casino & Resort after being excluded from the casino because he was allegedly counting cards while playing blackjack. He appeals the summary judgment ruling for the casino, arguing that Indiana law requires the casino to allow him to play blackjack there. The casino claims because it is a privately owned entity, it can exclude any patron. Arguments for Thomas P. Donovan v. Grand Victoria Casino & Resort, No. 49A02-0903-CV-259, begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Hoosier Room East, University Center North, 4201 Grant Line Road, New Albany.

  1. CCHP's real accomplishment is the 2015 law signed by Gov Pence that basically outlaws any annexation that is forced where a 65% majority of landowners in the affected area disagree. Regardless of whether HP wins or loses, the citizens of Indiana will not have another fiasco like this. The law Gov Pence signed is a direct result of this malgovernance.

  2. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  3. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  4. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.

  5. Here's an idea...how about we MORE heavily regulate the law schools to reduce the surplus of graduates, driving starting salaries up for those new grads, so that we can all pay our insane amount of student loans off in a reasonable amount of time and then be able to afford to do pro bono & low-fee work? I've got friends in other industries, radiology for example, and their schools accept a very limited number of students so there will never be a glut of new grads and everyone's pay stays high. For example, my radiologist friend's school accepted just six new students per year.
