Ind. Decisions - "Judge will stay on in Simon estate lawsuit"

The COA opinion today in Bren Simon v. Deborah J. Simon (ILB summary here) is featured in this new Indianapolis Star story by Jeff Swiatek. From the story:

The Court of Appeals of Indiana today dismissed Bren Simon’s attempt to remove the Hamilton County judge who is overseeing a lawsuit over her late husband’s estate.

The appeals court said Bren Simon doesn’t have legal standing to request the judge’s ouster because he had earlier replaced her as personal representative and trustee of the estate, valued at over $1.8 billion.

“Once a personal representative has been removed, the former representative lacks authority to prosecute an appeal of the removal order,” the appeals court said in its 16-page decision.
