Indiana Supreme Court
Clarence Lowe v. Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District
Civil tort. Affirms the grant of summary judgment to the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District against Clarence Lowe. Finds the district is a political subdivision under the Indiana Tort Claims Act, so it was entitled to notice within 180 days of Lowe’s alleged injury. Also finds that because Lowe did not provide notice until 263 days after his injury, his notice was untimely and his suit is time-barred.

Court of Appeals of Indiana
Termination of the Parent-Child Relationship of L.A. (Minor Child), D.P. (Mother) v. Indiana Department of Child Services, et al. (mem. dec.)
Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the involuntary termination of mother D.P.’s parental rights to her minor child, L.A. Finds the termination order was not clearly erroneous.

Donna Jones v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms the revocation of Donna Jones’ probation and the order for her to serve the balance of her suspended sentence in the Posey County Jail. Finds Jones was adequately advised about the consequences of the proceedings, so she has not established a deprivation of due process stemming from inadequate advisements. Also finds the Posey Circuit Court did not abuse its discretion in revoking probation and ordering Jones to serve her sentence in the PCJ.

Small claims. Affirms the entry of a small claims judgment against Mary Abraytis for unpaid medical services she incurred following an emergency room visit to Porter Hospital.
