1:30 p.m. 32A01-1209-CC-438. Following a bench trial in this breach of contract case, Claire’s Boutiques, Inc., a tenant of a strip mall owned by Brownsburg Station Partners, LLC, appeals the denial of its cross-motion for summary judgment and the entry of final judgment in favor Brownsburg regarding the interpretation of the operating co-tenancy provision in its retail lease.  Brownsburg cross-appeals, asserting that the trial court erred when it denied Brownsburg’s motion for partial summary judgment regarding construction of the operating co-tenancy provision and that the court erred when it denied Brownsburg’s request for consequential damages at trial.  The main issues on appeal are the construction of the operating co-tenancy provision in the lease and whether the tenant’s complete removal from the leased premises without notice constitutes termination of the lease by Claire’s or, instead, abandonment of the leased premises in default of the lease.

  1. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
