Public Hearings Set for Review of Marion County Small Claims Courts

The task force created to evaluate the Marion County Small Claims Courts scheduled three public hearings to review the practices and procedures used in the those courts. Hearings took place on Wed., Feb. 22, and Wed., Feb. 29 with another on Wed., March 7 at 6 p.m. in the Marion Circuit Courtroom. This task force was recently created by the Indiana Supreme Court after critical reports in the national press suggested litigants in those courts do not always have the same access to justice as litigants in other Indiana courts. The Indiana Supreme Court website contains additional information on the task force and the public hearings.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
