Indiana Court of Appeals
Belle City Amusements, Inc. v. Doorway Promotions, Inc.
Civil. Reverses award of damages for lost profits for the years 2010 through 2013 in the amount of $17,500 for each year to Doorway after Belle City cancelled its agreement with the company to provide rides and concessions for a festival. The damages were not a foreseeable consequence of the breach of the agreement between Belle City and Doorway and Indiana doesn’t allow for recovery for perceived loss of reputation or goodwill in an action for breach of contract. Affirms $24,000 award to Doorway for the 2009 rent of the Coliseum to house the festival. Remands for further proceedings.
Estate of Jane H. Collins v. T. William McKinney
Estate. Affirms summary judgment on the effectiveness of the option to purchase certain real estate, validity of the legal description, and award of specific performance to McKinney. The trial court didn’t abuse its discretion in allowing McKinney to submit a supplemental affidavit in support of his motion for summary judgment. Affirms ruling on Ray Collins’ breach of the option, and award of monetary compensation to McKinney. Reverses as to the value of the “damages” award and the accompanying award of pre-judgment interest and vacates award of attorney’s fees. Remands for further proceedings.
