1:30 p.m. 89A04-1311-CT-550. This case involves an appeal from the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of Reid Hospital and Healthcare Services in a case brought by Lori Henderson for injuries sustained when she fell on snow and ice in the Hospital's parking lot. Henderson contends that the trial court erred because material issues of fact exist and summary judgment was improperly granted. Specifically, Henderson argues that issues of fact exist as to whether the Hospital had sufficient opportunity to learn of the ice accumulation and rid the parking lot of the risk. She claims that the trial court incorrectly held that the Hospital did not have a duty to her, as an invitee, to remove the snow or ice until the precipitation had ceased and that controlling authority in Indiana, which adopted a reasonableness standard for determining whether a landowner exercised ordinary care in removing the natural accumulation of ice and snow on the premises, does not require the weather event at issue to cease before a landowner has a duty to an invitee to exercise reasonable care to remove the snow or ice.

  1. Hey 2 psychs is never enough, since it is statistically unlikely that three will ever agree on anything! New study admits this pseudo science is about as scientifically valid as astrology ... done by via fortune cookie ....John Ioannidis, professor of health research and policy at Stanford University, said the study was impressive and that its results had been eagerly awaited by the scientific community. “Sadly, the picture it paints - a 64% failure rate even among papers published in the best journals in the field - is not very nice about the current status of psychological science in general, and for fields like social psychology it is just devastating,” he said. http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/aug/27/study-delivers-bleak-verdict-on-validity-of-psychology-experiment-results

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
