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. 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?
