Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court issues another today; and a note

In Estate of Jerome Mintz v. Connecticut General Life Ins. Co. and Wayne E. Gruber, a 12-page, 5-0 opinion, Justice Rucker writes:

The Estate of Mintz appeals the trial court‟s grant of summary judgment in favor of Connecticut General Life Insurance Company and Agent Wayne Gruber. We affirm in part and reverse in part the judgment of the trial court.
[NOTE] The grandparents' rights opinion, summarized in this ILB entry from earlier today, has been removed without explanation from the Court website.

[MORE] Late this afternoon a note from the Court: "The Indiana Supreme Court handed down an amended opinion to correct an Administrative Rule 9 oversight."

The ILB has corrected the posted summary to conform.

The amended opinion now contains this footnote:

This is an amended opinion with a revised caption that now properly identifies the parties and affected persons in accordance with Indiana Administrative Rule 9(G)(4)(d), which became effective January 1, 2009. This amended opinion replaces a prior version issued earlier today, which inadvertently but incorrectly included the full names of the parents and grandmother of the minor child, contrary to the Rule. These persons had previously been publicly identified in the memorandum decision of the Court of Appeals issued prior to the effective date of the Rule.
