This week's oral arguments before the Court of Appeals (week of 8/2/10):
Wednesday, August 4th
- 1:30 PM - Victor C. Regalado v. The Estate of of Joseph J. Regalado (64A05-0911-CV-672) - Joseph Regalado received a fifteen million dollar settlement from the City of Chicago for the actions of its police officers in 2000 and died intestate in 2004. Because Joseph left no surviving spouse or issue, his estate is to be distributed to his surviving parents, brothers, sisters, and issue of his deceased brothers and sisters. Victor Regalado, Joseph's brother, now appeals the Porter Superior Court's determination that Paula Heffelfinger is Joseph's half-sister. Joseph's father married Paula's mother in 2003, thirty-five years after Paula's birth. When the marriage was annulled in 2005, Joseph's father acknowledged Paula to be his biological child. At issue is whether Indiana Code section 29-1-2-7(b), which governs the paternal inheritance to, through, and from a child born out of wedlock, applies to Paula such that she is an heir to Joseph's estate. Specifically, Indiana Code section 29-1-2-7(b)(4) provides that a child born out of wedlock shall be treated as if the child's father were married to the child's mother at the time of the child's birth if the putative father marries the mother of the child and acknowledges the child to be his own. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Najam, Vaidik and Brown. [Where: Court of Appeals Courtroom (WEBCAST)]
Next week's oral arguments before the Court of Appeals (week of 8/9/10):
Wednesday, August 11th
- 11:00 AM - Department of Waterworks v. Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County (93A02-1002-EX-218) - Whether the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission misinterpreted the Department of Waterworks Rules and the Commissions main extension rules in allowing the Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County to construct a service line for water service rather than pay for a main extension. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Chief Judge Baker, Judges Riley and Mathias. [Where: Court of Appeals Courtroom (WEBCAST)]
