3 p.m. 84A01-1302-ES-80. Wabash College. This appeal involves the review of an order and judgment of foreclosure of an equity line of credit and mortgage against the Supervised Estate of Mildred Borgwald.  The Appellant, the Supervised Estate of Mildred Borgwald (Estate), presents this court with several evidentiary issues pertaining to the competency of ninety-five year old Mildred Borgwald to execute an equity line of credit.  Specifically, the Estate asserts the following errors:

-          Whether the trial court abused its discretion when it excluded the testimony of the Estate’s proffered expert witness, a gyneacologist who had never treated Mildred;

-          Whether the trial court abused its discretion when it admitted redacted certified copies of medical records containing the observations of nurses and physicians regarding Mildred’s mental and physical status;

-          Whether the trial court improperly denied the Estate an opportunity to make an offer of proof; and

-          Whether Old National’s Mortgage was invalidated by failure of the closing agent to read the loan documents to Mildred in violation of Indiana Code section 33-42-2-2(4).

  1. Just an aside, but regardless of the outcome, I 'm proud of Judge William Hughes. He was the original magistrate on the Home place issue. He ruled for Home Place, and was primaried by Brainard for it. Their tool Poindexter failed to unseat Hughes, who won support for his honesty and courage throughout the county, and he was reelected Judge of Hamilton County's Superior Court. You can still stand for something and survive. Thanks, Judge Hughes!

  2. CCHP's real accomplishment is the 2015 law signed by Gov Pence that basically outlaws any annexation that is forced where a 65% majority of landowners in the affected area disagree. Regardless of whether HP wins or loses, the citizens of Indiana will not have another fiasco like this. The law Gov Pence signed is a direct result of this malgovernance.

  3. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  4. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  5. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.
