Indiana Court of Appeals
Meridian North Investments LP v. Anoop Sondhi DDS, MS
49A02-1405-PL-311
Civil plenary. Affirms on interlocutory appeal denial of Meridian North’s motion for summary judgment on Sondhi’s negligence claim arising from injuries sustained after a fall caused by slipping on ice as he attempted to enter his office. While Sondhi signed a lease as an officer of a partnership, a landlord exculpatory clause in the lease contract limiting Meridian’s liability did not bind Sondhi personally from pursuing a negligence claim.

Curtis Hardaway v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
49A02-1404-PC-261
Post conviction. Affirms denial of post-conviction relief.

Pamela Richardson v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
49A04-1406-CR-244
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

27A02-1403-CR-211
Criminal. Affirms aggregate 50-year sentence and convictions of Class A felonies dealing in cocaine over three grams and conspiracy to deal cocaine.

Jerrick Whitley v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
49A02-1406-CR-433
Criminal. Affirms in part, reverses in part and remands. Affirms Class D felony confinement conviction but vacates a Class A misdemeanor battery conviction because the trial court committed fundamental error when it failed to tender a specific unanimity instruction to the jury.
