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. Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend in December, but U.S. District Judge Robert Miller later reduced that to about $540,000 to put the damages for suffering under the statutory cap of $300,000.

  2. I was trying to remember, how did marriage get gay in Kentucky, did the people vote for it? Ah no, of course not. It was imposed by judicial fiat. The voted-for official actually represents the will of the majority in the face of an unelected federal judiciary. But democracy only is just a slogan for the powerful, they trot it out when they want and call it bigotry etc when they don't.

  3. Ah yes... Echoes of 1963 as a ghostly George Wallace makes his stand at the Schoolhouse door. We now know about the stand of personal belief over service to all constituents at the Carter County Clerk door. The results are the same, bigotry unable to follow the directions of the courts and the courts win. Interesting to watch the personal belief take a back seat rather than resign from a perception of local power to make the statement.

  4. An oath of office, does it override the conscience? That is the defense of overall soldier who violates higher laws, isnt it? "I was just following orders" and "I swore an oath of loyalty to der Fuhrer" etc. So this is an interesting case of swearing a false oath and then knowing that it was wrong and doing the right thing. Maybe they should chop her head off too like the "king's good servant-- but God's first" like St Thomas More. ...... We wont hold our breath waiting for the aclu or other "civil liberterians" to come to her defense since they are all arrayed on the gay side, to a man or should I say to a man and womyn?

  5. Perhaps we should also convene a panel of independent anthropological experts to study the issues surrounding this little-known branch of human sacrifice?
