Indiana Court of Appeals
David Anderson, Comm., Joe Wray, Comm., and Board of Trustees, Brown Co. Fire. Prot. Dist. v. Susanne Gaudin, Janet Kramer, And Ruth Reichmann
Civil plenary. Affirms trial court order invalidating the Brown County commissioners’ amendment of an ordinance creating a countywide fire district. In creating the district, the commissioners expressly granted it and its board of trustees the powers and authority enumerated in the ordinance, thereby relinquishing power to amend the ordinance.
Randy Corn v. Junior P. Corn, Bonnie D. Corn and Benjamin Corn
Civil plenary. Reverses trial court’s ruling that Randy Corn and Junior Corn are joint owners of a lane that transverses their properties.

Remands for further proceedings on the outstanding questions concerning the existence, nature and scope of a prescriptive easement and a permanent injunction.
