11 a.m. 32A01-1304-CC-155. Country Contractors and its two shareholders appeal a judgment in favor of Westside for damages stemming from Country Contractors’ breach of a contract to perform excavation services for Westside.  Country Contractors contracted out a significant portion of the work to a second general contractor, which hired the subcontractors. The subcontractors were never fully paid and filed mechanic’s liens against Westside’s property. The second contractor also filed a mechanic’s lien for its unpaid balance. Country Contractors (now in bankruptcy) also filed a mechanic’s lien for the unpaid portion of the contract. Westside filed a successful contract action against Country Contractors, seeking to recover sums it paid to extinguish mechanic’s liens of the subcontractors and second contractor.  Westside also sought and was awarded attorney’s fees and delay damages. Issues on appeal include: piercing the corporate veil, slander of title, attorney’s fees, and delay damages.

  1. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  2. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  3. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."

  4. This is why it is important to consider Long term care insurance. For you and for your loved ones

  5. I am terrified to see Fracking going on not only in Indiana but in Knox county. Water is the most important resource we have any where. It will be the new gold, and we can't live without it and we can live without gold. How ignorant are people?
