Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 3 today (and 10 NFP)

For publication opinions today (3):

In The Town of Plainfield, Indiana v. Hoosier Steel, Inc., et al. , a 20-page opinion, Judge Bailey writes:

The Town of Plainfield (“Plainfield”) appeals two orders of the Hendricks Superior Court, one granting partial summary judgment to Paden Engineering Co., Inc. (“Paden”), and one granting partial summary judgment to Merchants Bonding Company and Everest Reinsurance Company (collectively, “the Sureties”), upon Plainfield’s claims for damages for breach of contract and for payment upon a performance bond, respectively. We affirm. * * *

Paden has demonstrated the absence of a genuine issue of material fact and its entitlement to partial summary judgment as a matter of law upon Plainfield’s contractual claim for damages against Paden. The Sureties have demonstrated the absence of a genuine issue of material fact and their entitlement to partial summary judgment as a matter of law upon Plainfield’s contractual claim for payment under a performance bond. Accordingly, the trial court properly granted partial summary judgment to Paden and to the Sureties.

In Brian Holtzleiter v. Angela Holtzleiter , a 13-page opinion, Judge Crone concludes:
In sum, we conclude that under any reasonable application of the facts of this case to the Guidelines, Father has met the requirements of Indiana Code Section 31-16-8-1(2), and therefore we reverse the trial court’s denial of Father’s petition to modify child support. We remand for a new child support order consistent with this opinion. Reversed and remanded.
In Paternity of D.L., et al., C.L. v. Y.B. , a 6-page opinion, Judge Crone writes:
Y.B. (“Mother”) petitions for rehearing in In Re Paternity of D.L., 938 N.E.2d 1221 (Ind. Ct. App. 2010). We grant Y.B.’s petition in order to clarify our opinion but reaffirm it in all respects.
