The Court of Appeals of Indiana will visit two Ivy Tech campuses Thursday to hear arguments in an insurance case and battery case.
A panel of judges will hear oral arguments in Estate of Bradley Kinser v. Indiana Insurance Company, No. 29A02-1009-PL-1093, at 11 a.m. April 21 at Ivy Tech-Lafayette. The hearing will be in the Ivy Hall Auditorium, Room 1333. Chief Judge Margret G. Robb, Judge Patricia A. Riley, and Judge James S. Kirsch will hear the case on appeal from Hamilton Circuit Court.
The estate of Bradley Kinser appeals the trial court’s order granting summary judgment to Indiana Insurance Company in its action seeking declaratory judgment that the damages from Kinser’s automobile accident were excluded from coverage by Kinser’s insurance policy.
Judges L. Mark Bailey, Melissa S. May, and Elaine B. Brown will hear oral arguments in Trinda Barocas v. State of Indiana, No.49A02-1007-CR-732, at 4 p.m. CDT April 21 at Ivy Tech-Evansville. The hearing will be in the Vectren Auditorium, Room 147.
In this appeal from Marion Superior Court, Trinda Barocas, a special education teacher, appeals her conviction of battery. She argues that, as a teacher, her action of flicking a student’s tongue with her finger was legally justified as a reasonably necessary disciplinary action.
