COA to hold oral argument in Allen County

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in Carrie Chapman v. Howard L. Chapman and Elizabeth W. Chapman, Trustees of The Stephen L. Chapman Irrevocable Trust Agreement, No. 02A03-1012-TR-624, at 10:30 a.m. July 12 at the Allen County Courthouse in Ft. Wayne. Hearing the case on appeal from Allen Superior Court will be Judges Edward W. Najam, Jr., James S. Kirsch, and Paul D. Mathias.

Carrie Chapman challenges the trial court’s jurisdiction in a matter involving the distribution of funds from a trust, and she appeals the trial court’s decision to change the date of distribution of funds from the same trust.  Arguing for the appellant will be James Koday of Bewley & Koday, Fort Wayne. Cathleen Shrader, a partner at the Fort Wayne firm of Barrett & McNagny, will argue for Howard and Elizabeth Chapman.

The court hears oral argument at venues across the state to enable Indiana citizens to learn about the judicial branch. Members of the audience may ask questions about the judicial process in Indiana following the submission of the case. The court has heard more than 300 oral arguments “on the road” at law schools, colleges, high schools, and county courthouses since 2000.
