Indiana Court of Appeals
Belinda Douglas v. Neil Spicer and L.S.
32A01-1309-JP-403
Juvenile. Affirms order that Spicer pay $6,600 in back child support. The trial court did not err when it determined that father’s court-ordered child support obligation terminated after 33 weeks in October 2005.

Don Morris v. Biosafe Engineering, LLC
32A04-1306-PL-321
Civil plenary. Affirms summary judgment for BioSafe Engineering. Morris unambiguously abandoned his shareholder derivative claim against BioSafe, therefore, he was stopped from asserting a claim he had abandoned.

In re the Paternity of D.M.: J.W. v. C.M.
10A01-1306-JP-253
Juvenile.  Reverses denial of J.W.’s motion to dismiss the state’s verified petition for the establishment of paternity alleging he was the father of C.M.’s stillborn child. The state had no authority to bring this action and the trial court erred in allowing it to proceed.

In the Matter of: A.P. (Minor Child), Child in Need of Services and J.H. (Father) v. The Indiana Department of Child Services (NFP)
49A02-1309-JC-785
Juvenile.  Affirms adjudication that A.P. is a child in need of services.

93A02-1310-EX-910
Agency action. Affirms denial of application for workers’ compensation benefits.

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
