Indiana Supreme Court
M & M Investment Group, LLC v. Ahlemeyer Farms, Inc. and Monroe Bank
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
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.
