1:30 p.m. 49A04-1309-PL-451. Appellants-Plaintiffs Jeffrey M. Miller and Cynthia S. Miller (collectively, "Appellants") appeal the trial court's order granting Appellees-Defendants Central Indiana Community Foundation, Inc. and Brian Payne's (collectively, "Appellees") motion for summary judgment. In arguing that the trial court erred in granting Appellees' motion for summary judgment, Appellants contend that an issue of material fact remains as to whether (1) Appellees tortiously interfered with Mr. Miller's business relationship with the City of Indianapolis, (2) Appellees' statements were defamatory per se, (3) Appellants' lawsuit against Appellees was meritless, (4) statements made by Appellees were protected by qualified privilege, (5) Appellees were involved in a civil conspiracy to injure the Appellants, (6) Appellees caused intentional infliction of emotional distress to Mr. Miller, (7) Mr. Payne's published statements placed Mr. Miller in a false light, and (8) Mrs. Miller has suffered a loss of consortium because of Appellees' actions. Appellees, for their part, contend that the trial court properly granted their motion for summary judgment.

  1. Is this a social parallel to the Mosby prosecutions in Baltimore? Progressive ideology ever seeks Pilgrims to burn at the stake. (I should know.)

  2. The Conour embarrassment is an example of why it would be a good idea to NOT name public buildings or to erect monuments to "worthy" people until AFTER they have been dead three years, at least. And we also need to stop naming federal buildings and roads after a worthless politician whose only achievement was getting elected multiple times (like a certain Congressman after whom we renamed the largest post office in the state). Also, why have we renamed BOTH the Center Township government center AND the new bus terminal/bum hangout after Julia Carson?

  3. Other than a complete lack of any verifiable and valid historical citations to back your wild context-free accusations, you also forget to allege "ate Native American children, ate slave children, ate their own children, and often did it all while using salad forks rather than dinner forks." (gasp)

  4. "So we broke with England for the right to "off" our preborn progeny at will, and allow the processing plant doing the dirty deeds (dirt cheap) to profit on the marketing of those "products of conception." I was completely maleducated on our nation's founding, it would seem. (But I know the ACLU is hard at work to remedy that, too.)" Well, you know, we're just following in the footsteps of our founders who raped women, raped slaves, raped children, maimed immigrants, sold children, stole property, broke promises, broke apart families, killed natives... You know, good God fearing down home Christian folk! :/

  5. Who gives a rats behind about all the fluffy ranking nonsense. What students having to pay off debt need to know is that all schools aren't created equal and students from many schools don't have a snowball's chance of getting a decent paying job straight out of law school. Their lowly ranked lawschool won't tell them that though. When schools start honestly (accurately) reporting *those numbers, things will get interesting real quick, and the looks on student's faces will be priceless!
