Indiana Court of Appeals
Estate of Wilgus S. Gibbs, Sr.
Estate. Affirms grant of summary judgment in favor of Wilgus Gibbs Jr., individually and as a personal representative of the estate and executor of the will of Wilgus Gibbs Sr. Gibbs Sr.’s granddaughters failed to rebut the presumption of regularity in the execution of his will that is established by the self-proving clause. There is also no evidence of undue influence or that the will was the result of a mistake or fraud.

Charles Meek v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms denial of Meek’s motion to suppress evidence discovered during a warrantless search of him during a Terry stop of his car. Meek’s admittance to smoking marijuana earlier in the day and to having a handgun on him, along with the police officer’s failure to find the source of the odor in the car and the absence of marijuana on his passenger, supported the subsequent and more thorough pat-down search of Meek that led to the discovery of contraband.
