Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 3 NFP)
For publication opinions today (1):
In Bart Whitesitt v. Town of Knightstown, an 8-page opinion, Judge Mathias writes:
Bart Whitesitt (“Whitesitt”) appeals the Henry Circuit Court’s order entering summary judgment in favor of the Town of Knightstown (“the Town”) in which the trial court determined that the Town did not violate Indiana Code section 33-35-1-1 when it abolished the Knightstown Town Court (“the Town Court”). As we reach the same conclusion, we affirm. * * *ILB: For background, see this Sept. 14, 2011 ILB post.
For all of these reasons, we conclude that Indiana Code section 33-35-1-1(d) provides that a town or city court created prior to January 1, 1986, may be abolished by ordinance at any time. Because the Town Court was in existence well before January 1, 1986, the Town’s enactment of Ordinance 7-2011 abolishing the Town Court was statutorily authorized under Indiana Code section 33-35-1-1. We therefore affirm the judgment of the trial court.
