Indiana Court of Appeals
J.P., et al. v. Indiana Department of Child Services (mem. dec.)
Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the termination of J.P.’s parental rights to her three children. Finds the St. Joseph Probate Court’s findings — there was a reasonable probability that the conditions leading to the children’s removal and continued placement outside J.P.’s care would not be remedied and that the termination of J.P.’s parental rights was in the children’s best interests — were supported by evidence.
Diamond Miller v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Diamond Miller’s conviction for Level 1 felony neglect of a dependent resulting in death. Finds the evidence is sufficient to support Miller’s conviction.
Todd A. Bylsma v. Diana (Bylsma) Smith (mem. dec.)
Domestic relation. Affirms the Spencer Circuit Court’s order requiring Todd Bylsma to pay a portion of his daughter’s postsecondary educational expenses and denying his request that the trial court find Diana Smith in contempt. The trial court did not err in finding that Bylsma’s daughter, Robyn, did not repudiate him, in calculating his income and Robyn’s postsecondary educational expenses or in finding that Smith was not in contempt.
Sheila Manhas, M.D. v. Franciscan Hammond Clinic, LLC, Hammond Clinic, LLC, and Deepak Majmudar, M.D., Individually (mem. dec.)
Civil tort. Grants rehearing for the limited purpose of correcting a citation error. Affirms the Indiana Court of Appeals’ opinion in all other respects.
