Indiana Supreme Court
M & M Investment Group, LLC v. Ahlemeyer Farms, Inc. and Monroe Bank
03S04-1211-CC-645
Civil collection. Reverses the trial court and remands. Rules the requirement in Indiana Code 6-1.1-24-3(b)  that a mortgage holder must request a copy of a notice that a parcel of property is eligible for tax sale does not violate the 14th Amendment’s due process clause. The Supreme Court upheld 20 years of precedent in finding the statute is constitutional.

Courtney L. Schwartz v. Jodi S. Heeter
02S03-1301-DR-18
Domestic relation. Affirms trial court ruling ordering father to pay child support according to a 2010 change in the Child Support Guidelines despite a support agreement entered into in 2009. The court found that a distribution clause in the contract required calculation of each year’s income in accordance with the guidelines applicable to that year’s income. The regularly changing nature of the guidelines, the purpose of those changes and of child support generally lead to such a conclusion, the court held.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Dagmar Enid Breeden v. James Breeden (NFP)
13A01-1303-DR-131
Domestic relation. Affirms transfer of full custody, care and control of minor child, J.M.B. to father, Breeden.

Indiana Tax Court did not release any opinions by IL deadline. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals did not release any Indiana opinions by IL deadline.

  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!!
