Court of Appeals of Indiana
Jamie Israel v. Yaima Israel
21A-DC-1063
Domestic relations with children. Affirms and reverses in part the provisions of the decree of dissolution of the marriage of Jamie Israel and Yaima Israel. Finds the Marion Superior Court did not err in valuing the marital residence and personal property of the marriage, nor in dividing the retirement accounts. Also finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding Yaima sole legal custody of their child or in denying Jamie’s request for an award of attorney fees. Finally, finds the non-disparagement clause of the final decree was an unconstitutional prior restraint on speech and was overbroad to the extent it forbade the parties from making disparaging comments about the other when outside the presence of the child. Remands with instructions to modify the non-disparagement clause.

Tracey William Crowley v. State of Indiana
21A-MI-2064
Miscellaneous. Affirms the denial of Tracey William Crowley’s petition for removal from Indiana’s Sex and Violent Offender Registry. Finds the application of the 2006-2007 other jurisdiction registration requirement to Crowley does not constitute ex post facto punishment.

Jeremy Garringer v. Chrisje M. Garringer (mem. dec.)
21A-DR-2652
Domestic relations. Affirms the grant of primary physical custody of C.G. and L.G. to mother Ch.G. Finds the custody modification order is not clearly erroneous.

In re the Termination of the Parent-Child Relationship of: H.R. (Minor Child) And B.R. (Mother) v. Indiana Department of Child Services (mem. dec.)
21A-JT-2768
Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the termination of mother B.R.’s parental rights to H.R. Finds B.R. has not established reversible error. Also finds the Daviess Circuit Court’s order terminating B.R.’s parental rights is supported by clear and convincing evidence.
