Indiana Court of Appeals
Hochstetler Living Trust v. Friends of Pumpkinville Nature Trail
Civil plenary. Affirms trial court’s partial summary judgment in favor of Friends of Pumpkinville Nature Trail, which quieted title to a disputed tract in favor of the nature trail. Because the Plank Deed from 1899 conveyed a fee simple interest to the railroad company, the Penn Central quitclaim deed conveyed that fee simple interest to the nature trail. As this conveyance preceded the settlement agreement in the Firestone class action, it is excluded from the order entered in that case and the nature trail is not precluded from bringing the current quiet title action.
Cyril Huerter v. Estate of James Sedric (NFP)
Mortgage foreclosure. Affirms trial court’s ruling in favor of the estate of James Sedric in Huerter’s complaint to quiet title.
