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. 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.
