Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 4 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Walsh & Kelly, Inc. v. International Contractors, Inc., et al., a 10-page opinion, Judge Riley writes:

Appellant-Plaintiff, Walsh & Kelly, Inc. (Walsh), appeals the trial court's judgment in favor of Appellee-Defendant, Signature Properties, Inc. (Signature), with respect to Signature's claim that it was not fully indemnified for its damages by a collateral assignment agreement and with respect to Signature's claim that Walsh slandered the title of Signature's property. We affirm.

Walsh raises two issues on appeal, which we restate as follows:(1) Whether the trial court erred in holding that Signature's collateral assignment agreement with International Contractors, Inc. (International) did not fully indemnify Signature; and(2) Whether the trial court erred in holding that Walsh was liable to Signature for slander of title.
