Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending June 25, 2010
Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending June 25, 2010. It is two pages (and 27 cases) long.
Four transfers were granted last week, and there was one dismissal.
Two of the transfers were granted "with opinion": Curtis Outlaw v. State of Indiana and Steven T. Marbley-El v. State of Indiana on 6/24/10 - see this ILB entry summarizing the opinions.
Here are the two transfers:
- Adoption of L.D.; A.B. and N.E. v. J.D. J.D. - Here is the 2/25/10 ILB summary of the COA opinion - 3rd case, quoting the Court:
In sum, Mother's contention that the Paternal Grandparents should have obtained her consent for the adoption is not properly before us, and we dismiss the appeal with respect to this issue. Further, Mother has not shown that service of process by publication in the Indianapolis Recorder was inadequate. Nor has N.E. shown that the adoption statute's failure to require that she, as a grandparent, receive notice of the adoption proceeding violates her due process rights in that a grandparent does not have a liberty interest in visitation with her grandchildren. And, finally, N.E. has not shown that she is entitled to visitation under the Grandparent Visitation Act following entry of the Decree because the adoptive parents, Paternal Grandparents, were neither stepparents nor biologically related to L.D. before the adoption. As such, we affirm the trial court's order denying the motion to set aside the Decree.
- Cassie E. Pfenning v. Joseph E. Lineman, et al. - a 2-1, 2/15/10 COA opinion - ILB summary here. Judge Kirsch's dissent begins:
Hmmm. After being abandoned by her grandfather and his sister, in whose care she had been entrusted, a sixteen-year-old girl, without training or experience in golf course safety or etiquette, is injured at a golf outing sponsored by a bar, while she is driving a beverage cart loaded with beer dispensed by one of the bar's employees. Surely, there is a duty here someplace.
