Indiana Court of Appeals
Alexander Gatzimos, M.D. v. Boone County and State of Indiana
Civil. Grants the state’s motion to dismiss Dr. Gatzimos’ appeal of the trial court order denying his petition for expungement. Remands to the trial court to allow Gatzimos the opportunity to present admissible evidence as to whether his charges were dismissed because of mistaken identity; no offense was actually committed; or there was an absence of probable cause.
William Nolan v. City of Indianapolis
Civil tort. Affirms summary judgment for the City of Indianapolis. The COA holding in Nolan’s criminal appeal that his arrest was lawful precludes him from re-litigating that issue in a civil case brought by him for false arrest and false imprisonment.
Phyllis Woodsmall, et al. v. Lost Creek Township Conservation Club, Inc.
Civil plenary. Affirms judgment denying homeowners injunctive relief on Woodsmall and the other’s nuisance claim. The evidence doesn’t lead solely to the conclusion that Lost Creek used its property to the detriment of the homeowners.

Maurits Wiersema v. Lisa (Wiersema) Bauman (NFP)
Civil. Affirms valuation of Wiersema’s IMAGI holdings at the time of final separation at $1,000,000.00, including 2007 tax refunds in the marital estate, assigning half of the Sycamore Hills membership to Bauman, assigning the Bauman Investment to Bauman, and assessing GAL fees. Reverses decision to include unvested portions of Wiersema’s IMA 401(k) in the marital estate and failure to assign liability for half of certain property taxes paid post-filing by Wiersema to Bauman. Remands to revise the final dissolution order so as not to include the unvested portions of Wiersema’s 401(k) in the marital estate, assign half of the property tax liability to Bauman, and recalculate the distribution of the marital estate as appropriate.
Robert Coslet v. State of Indiana (NFP)
