9:45 a.m. 49A02-1105-CR-382. After Helen Pine's death, Plaintiffs filed a complaint alleging the Defendants failed to diagnose Helen's cancer timely and thereby increased her risk of harm. The Marion Superior Court granted all Defendants summary judgment. The Court of Appeals affirmed on grounds including that no expert "could give an opinion on [Helen's] percentage chance of survival" before the alleged failure to diagnose, and Plaintiffs therefore "failed to produce quantitative evidence of the risk of harm[.]" Pine v. Stirling Clinic, Inc, No. 49A02-1105-CT-382, slip op. at 14 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb. 29, 2012), trans. pending. Plaintiffs have petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
