11 a.m. 79A02-1111-CT-1014. In this appeal, John and Janice Gresser, individually and as parents and natural guardians of Elizabeth and Rebekah Gresser, allege that they were injured by a pesticide manufactured by Dow Agrosciences, LLC and applied by Reliable Exterminators.  Both the Gressers and Reliable Exterminators have requested that an oral argument be scheduled.  Among the questions presented in this appeal are: (1) whether the Gresser’s state law claims are preempted by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide & Rodenticide Act; (2) whether the pesticide is defective under the Indiana Product Liability Act; (3) whether Reliable Exterminators was negligent in its application of the pesticide; (4) whether Gresser’s expert evidence is sufficient to prove causation; and (5) whether Gresser is entitled to punitive damages.

  1. That comment on this e-site, which reports on every building, courtroom or even insignificant social movement by beltway sycophants as being named to honor the yet-quite-alive former chief judge, is truly laughable!

  2. Is this a social parallel to the Mosby prosecutions in Baltimore? Progressive ideology ever seeks Pilgrims to burn at the stake. (I should know.)

  3. The Conour embarrassment is an example of why it would be a good idea to NOT name public buildings or to erect monuments to "worthy" people until AFTER they have been dead three years, at least. And we also need to stop naming federal buildings and roads after a worthless politician whose only achievement was getting elected multiple times (like a certain Congressman after whom we renamed the largest post office in the state). Also, why have we renamed BOTH the Center Township government center AND the new bus terminal/bum hangout after Julia Carson?

  4. Other than a complete lack of any verifiable and valid historical citations to back your wild context-free accusations, you also forget to allege "ate Native American children, ate slave children, ate their own children, and often did it all while using salad forks rather than dinner forks." (gasp)

  5. "So we broke with England for the right to "off" our preborn progeny at will, and allow the processing plant doing the dirty deeds (dirt cheap) to profit on the marketing of those "products of conception." I was completely maleducated on our nation's founding, it would seem. (But I know the ACLU is hard at work to remedy that, too.)" Well, you know, we're just following in the footsteps of our founders who raped women, raped slaves, raped children, maimed immigrants, sold children, stole property, broke promises, broke apart families, killed natives... You know, good God fearing down home Christian folk! :/
