1:30 p.m. 51A01-1305-PL-241. Salem High School. Richard M. Tallman appeals the trial court’s entry of summary judgment in favor of the State of Indiana, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and Anthony Mann (collectively “DNR”) on Tallman’s complaint alleging DNR’s negligence.  In December 2004, Jerry Tredway hired Tallman to harvest timber on his property for sale.  After Tallman harvested more trees than the contract had authorized, Tredway’s daughter contacted DNR.  After an investigation, DNR arrested Tallman and transported him to the Martin County Jail.  Tallman claims that he sustained injuries as a result of the DNR’s placement of handcuffs around his wrists.  Tallman sued DNR for damages, and DNR moved for summary judgment, which the trial court granted.  On appeal, Tallman presents a single issue for our review, namely, whether the trial court erred when it concluded that DNR is immune from liability for Tallman’s alleged injuries as a matter of law.

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer.
