Court of Appeals of Indiana
Leandrew Beasley v. State of Indiana
Post-conviction. Dismisses Leandrew Beasley’s appeal of the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. Finds Beasley forfeited his right to appeal from the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, and no extraordinarily compelling reasons exist sufficient to restore that right.
Wade Ross Roark v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Wade Ross Roark’s convictions of Level 1 felony attempted murder and Level 5 felony criminal recklessness and his aggregate 38-year sentence. Finds Roark invited any alleged error in the Jefferson Circuit Court’s decision to grant the state’s motion in limine. Also finds Roark has failed to carry his burden to show that his sentence is inappropriate.
Ryan Carpenter v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Ryan Carpenter’s conviction of Level 1 felony conspiracy to commit murder. Finds the evidence was sufficient to sustain Carpenter’s conviction.
Jill W. Donaldson, M.D., Community Physicians of Indiana, Inc., and Community Health Network, Inc. d/b/a Community Hospital North v. Myra Bishop, as personal representative of the Estate of Jacquelyn S. Grady, and on behalf of Aaron Murray Stewart and Javen Anthony Medaris, minor children (mem. dec.)
Civil tort. Reverses the denial of a motion for summary judgment filed by Jill W. Donaldson, M.D., Community Physicians of Indiana Inc. and Community Health Network Inc. d/b/a Community Hospital North on a medical malpractice claim filed by Myra Bishop, as personal representative of the estate of Jacquelyn S. Grady, and on behalf of Aaron Murray Stewart and Javen Anthony Medaris, minor children. Finds Donaldson’s deposition testimony made no suggestion that her decision to schedule Grady’s shunt procedure within one week was unreasonable under the circumstances or fell below the applicable standard of care for neurosurgeons, so the appellants were entitled to summary judgment and the Marion Superior Court erred in denying their motion.
