11 a.m. 49A04-1209-CT-445. In June 2010, Paul Komyatti rode his bicycle to an Indianapolis bar, drank some beers, and started biking home.  As Komyatti was biking at least twenty miles per hour on the left side of the street under a railroad bridge, his front wheel struck a water-filled pothole.  Komyatti fell off his bike and was injured.  He was taken to the hospital, where his blood alcohol concentration was measured at .137, which exceeds the .08 legal limit for operating a vehicle.  Komyatti filed suit against the City of Indianapolis and Citizens Energy Group.  He alleged that the City was negligent in maintaining the street and that Citizens was negligent in allowing coke to clog the storm drains under the railroad bridge, which allegedly contributed to the pothole.  The City moved for summary judgment on the basis that Komyatti was contributorily negligent, which is a complete bar to recovery in tort claims against governmental entities.  Citizens also moved for summary judgment, asserting that it did not create a dangerous condition, had no duty to maintain the street, and did not proximately cause Komyatti’s injuries.  The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of both the City and Citizens. Komyatti now appeals.

  1. I have a degree at law, recent MS in regulatory studies. Licensed in KS, admitted b4 S& 7th circuit, but not to Indiana bar due to political correctness. Blacklisted, nearly unemployable due to hostile state action. Big Idea: Headwinds can overcome, esp for those not within the contours of the bell curve, the Lego Movie happiness set forth above. That said, even without the blacklisting for holding ideas unacceptable to the Glorious State, I think the idea presented above that a law degree open many vistas other than being a galley slave to elitist lawyers is pretty much laughable. (Did the law professors of Indiana pay for this to be published?)

  3. Joe, you might want to do some reading on the fate of Hoosier whistleblowers before you get your expectations raised up.

  4. I had a hospital and dcs caseworker falsify reports that my child was born with drugs in her system. I filed a complaint with the Indiana department of health....and they found that the hospital falsified drug screens in their investigation. Then I filed a complaint with human health services in Washington DC...dcs drug Testing is unregulated and is indicating false positives...they are currently being investigated by human health services. Then I located an attorney and signed contracts one month ago to sue dcs and Anderson community hospital. Once the suit is filed I am taking out a loan against the suit and paying a law firm to file a writ of mandamus challenging the courts jurisdiction to invoke chins case against me. I also forwarded evidence to a u.s. senator who contacted hhs to push an investigation faster. Once the lawsuit is filed local news stations will be running coverage on the situation. Easy day....people will be losing their jobs soon...and judge pancol...who has attempted to cover up what has happened will also be in trouble. The drug testing is a kids for cash and federal funding situation.

  5. (A)ll (C)riminals (L)ove (U)s is up to their old, "If it's honorable and pro-American, we're against it," nonsense. I'm not a big Pence fan but at least he's showing his patriotism which is something the left won't do.
