1:30 p.m. 82A01-1201-PL-2. Alva Electric, Inc., Arc Construction Company, Inc., Danco Construction, Inc., Deig Brothers Lumber & Construction Co., Empire Contractors, Inc., Peyronnin Construction Company, Inc., Weddle Brothers Construction Company, Inc., and Wink Construction Inc. (collectively, “the Contractors”), on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated taxpayers within the district of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (“the school corporation”), appeal the Vanderburgh Circuit Court’s denial of their motion for summary judgment and grant of a cross-motion for summary judgment in favor of the school corporation and its related foundation, on the contractors’ claims under Indiana’s Public Lawsuit Statute (Ind. Code §§ 34-13-5-1 to -12) and Antitrust Act (Ind. Code § 24-1-2-3). The contractors challenge the propriety of the grant of summary judgment as the sole issue on appeal. Specifically, they argue that the trial court erred in concluding that the contested building renovation project was not subject to competitive bidding procedures.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
