Indiana Court of Appeals
Gregory Schafer v. Kathryne Borchert d/b/a Southlake Realty.
Civil plenary. Affirms judgment for Kathryne Borchert after Gregory Schafer appealed the judgment on Schafer’s claims that a tax sale notice was sent to him one day late when Borchert filed for a quiet title. Schafer had filed on cross-appeal to have the tax deeds set aside. The Court of Appeals found the trial court misinterpreted Trial Rule 6(A), counting the number of days between the notice and sale incorrectly.

Julie D. Himes v. Todd A. Himes (mem. dec.)
Domestic relations. Affirms trial court did not err in granting children right to pursue arrearage for post-secondary expenses and that mother’s overpaid college expenses were gifts.

Remands with instructions for trial court to determine the amount of attorney fees mother should receive as a result of father’s contempt.
