Indiana Court of Appeals
Gared Holdings, LLC v. Best Bolt Products, Inc.
49A02-1210-PL-811
Civil plenary.  Affirms the trial court’s judgment on Gared’s claims of breach of contract and breach of the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose as those claims are supported by the evidence. The trial court erred in ruling that Best Bolt was not a merchant. Remands for the trial court to determine whether Best Bolt breached the implied warranty of merchantability, and if so, whether that alters the result of Best Bolt’s counterclaim. Chief Judge Robb concurs in separate opinion and dissents in part.

Kevin C. Stone v. Jennifer M. Stone
49A02-1210-DR-820
Domestic relation. The trial court did not err in refusing to approve the parties’ settlement agreement regarding child custody without receiving evidence regarding whether the agreement was in M.S.’s best interests, nor did it err in allowing mother to present evidence and argue that it was not in M.S.’s best interests. The trial court abused its discretion in denying father’s third continuance motion. Reverses and remands for a new hearing regarding custody of M.S. Also reverses that part of the dissolution decree ordering father to pay $5,000 towards mother’s attorney fees. The dissolution decree’s property division orders, as reflected in the settlement agreement, are affirmed.

In The Paternity of J.P.: P.M. (Mother) v. J.P. (Father) (NFP)
71A03-1303-JP-70
Juvenile. Affirms order finding mother in contempt of court.

Anthony Shockley v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A02-1212-CR-957
Criminal. Affirms convictions of murder and Class C felony attempted robbery, but remands for correction of the abstract of judgment.

29A02-1301-DR-144
Domestic relation. Affirms portion of the trial court’s decree of dissolution concerning international travel with the parties’ minor child E.G.
 
In the Matter of the Adoption of C.A.H., minor; J.N.E. v. L.M.H. (NFP)
49A02-1302-AD-129
Adoption. Affirms order denying the biological mother’s motion for relief of judgment to set aside an adoption decree in favor of L.M.H.

  1. All the lawyers involved in this don't add up to a hill of beans; mostly yes-men punching their tickets for future advancement. REMF types. Window dressing. Who in this mess was a real hero? the whistleblower that let the public know about the torture, whom the US sent to Jail. John Kyriakou. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/26/us/ex-officer-for-cia-is-sentenced-in-leak-case.html?_r=0 Now, considering that Torture is Illegal, considering that during Vietnam a soldier was court-martialed and imprisoned for waterboarding, why has the whistleblower gone to jail but none of the torturers have been held to account? It's amazing that Uncle Sam's sunk lower than Vietnam. But that's where we're at. An even more unjust and pointless war conducted in an even more bogus manner. this from npr: "On Jan. 21, 1968, The Washington Post ran a front-page photo of a U.S. soldier supervising the waterboarding of a captured North Vietnamese soldier. The caption said the technique induced "a flooding sense of suffocation and drowning, meant to make him talk." The picture led to an Army investigation and, two months later, the court martial of the soldier." Today, the US itself has become lawless.

  2. "Brain Damage" alright.... The lunatic is on the grass/ The lunatic is on the grass/ Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs/ Got to keep the loonies on the path.... The lunatic is in the hall/ The lunatics are in my hall/ The paper holds their folded faces to the floor/ And every day the paper boy brings more/ And if the dam breaks open many years too soon/ And if there is no room upon the hill/ And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too/ I'll see you on the dark side of the moon!!!

  3. It is amazing how selectively courts can read cases and how two very similar factpatterns can result in quite different renderings. I cited this very same argument in Brown v. Bowman, lost. I guess it is panel, panel, panel when one is on appeal. Sad thing is, I had Sykes. Same argument, she went the opposite. Her Rooker-Feldman jurisprudence is now decidedly unintelligible.

  4. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  5. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?
