Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending February 11, 2011
Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending February 11, 2011. It is three pages (and 38 cases) long.
Four transfers were granted for the week ending February 11, one with opinion:
- Mariea L. Best v. Russell C. Best - granted with opinion Feb. 8, 2011. See the ILB summary of the 3-1 opinion (J.David not participating) here.
- Misty D. Davis v. Animal Control - City of Evansville, et al. - this was an Aug. 27, 2010 2-1, NFP opinion - at issue was the City of Evansville's claim of immunity for injuries Davis sustained from a dog bite relating to the action or inaction of Animal Control.
- Mary Beth & Perry Lucas v. U.S. Bank, N.A., et al. - this was an Aug. 11, 2010 opinion - here is the ILB summary of the COA ruling. From the opinion: "While a foreclosure action is essentially equitable and it is well settled that equitable claims are tried to a court rather than to a jury, the fact that a cause contains a foreclosure action does not necessarily draw the entire cause into equity. Indeed, when, as here, the essential features of the cause are not equitable, a party is entitled to a jury trial on the legal claims."
- Rod L. Avery, et al. v. Trina Avery - this was an Sept. 7, 2010 opinion - here is the ILB summary. The COA ruled: "Again, a will contest is a freestanding cause of action separate and distinct from the administration of an estate, and the trial rules generally apply to will contests. We hold that the Averys were required to file a timely answer to Trina’s complaint. They failed to do so. The trial court did not err when it entered default judgment against the Averys."
Search all the Transfer Lists: The ILB feature, "Search the ILB Transfer Lists," allows you to do just that. Check it out. Read the instructions. Note that the search is now current through the January 11, 2011 list.
The ILB archive now contains seven years of Transfer Lists: For other weekly transfer lists (going back to Feb. 2, 2004), check "Indiana Transfer Lists" under "Categories" below, or in the right column.
