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. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
