Thursday, August 13th
- 11:00 AM - Alisha Harradon & William Kenneth Jones, Jr. vs. Kathy & Keith Schlamadinger - Alisha Harradon and William Jones, Jr. (collectively "the Parents") filed a complaint in Starke Circuit Court against Keith and Kathy Schlamadinger (collectively "the Schlamadingers") alleging that the Schlamadingers' negligence proximately caused the death of the Parents child. The Parents were overnight guests in the Schlamadingers'home, and they allege that the Schlamadingers did not provide an adequate place for the Parents' three-month-old child to sleep. The child suffocated during the night while sleeping on the couch with his mother. The Schlamadingers filed a motion for summary judgment, which the trial court granted. The Parents appeal and argue that the Schlamadingers owed a duty to the child, and there is a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the Schlamadingers breached that duty. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Riley, Kirsch and Mathias. [Where: Indiana Court of Appeals Courtroom - WEBCAST]
Next week's oral arguments before the Court of Appeals (week of 8/17/09):
Next Wednesday, August 19th
- 2:00 PM - City of Indianapolis, et al vs. Christine Armour, et al - The City of Indianapolis appeals from the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of Christine Armour, et al. ("the Plaintiffs"), on the Plaintiffs' complaint seeking refunds for Barrett Law assessments the City made in the course of a sewer project. The City contends that it had a rational basis to support Resolution 101, which forgave Barrett Law assessment balances existing as of November 1, 2005, but did not refund assessments paid in full prior to that date. Thus, the City maintains that the Plaintiffs cannot prevail on their complaint. The Plaintiffs respond that the City did not have a rational basis to support the resolution, which violated both the Federal and State constitutions. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Najam, Kirsch and Barnes. [Where: Indiana Court of Appeals Courtroom - WEBCAST]
