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. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
