1:30 p.m. 29A02-1201-PL-4. Appellant-Defendant, Roche Diagnostics Operations, Inc. (Roche), appeals the trial court’s denial of its cross-motion for summary judgment and its judgment in favor of Marsh Supermarkets, LLC (Marsh), awarding damages for Roche’s breach of its sublease with Marsh.
Roche presents this court with three issues:
(1) Whether the trial court erred by denying Roche’s cross-motion for summary judgment by a) declining to find as a matter of law that the language of the sublease granted Roche the right to terminate the sublease if it did not receive a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement (SDNA) by a certain date; or, b) by determining that genuine issues of material fact regarding the parties’ cooperation in obtaining the SNDA precluded summary judgment.   
(2) Whether the trial court erred in granting judgment to Marsh by determining that Roche’s right to terminate the sublease required reasonable prior notice; 2) that Marsh’s delivery of the SNDA to Roche was effective; 3) that Roche had not fulfilled its obligation to cooperate regarding the SNDA; and 4) that Roche had defaulted under the terms of the sublease.
(3) Whether the trial court erred in awarding Marsh damages based upon sublease payments under the entire eighteen year term of the sublease rather than awarding damages in light of Roche’s right of early termination upon the fifth anniversary of the sublease.

  5. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon
