Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court issues one opinion today, re mechanic's liens and attorney's fees

In Goodrich Quality Theaters, Inc., and Roncelli, Inc. v. Fostcorp Heating and Cooling, Inc., Wilson Iron Works, Inc., and Johnson Carpet, Inc., a 10-page, 5-0 opinion, Justice David writes:

The question before us is whether, under Indiana’s mechanic’s lien statute, lienholders are entitled to collect attorney’s fees incurred in foreclosing upon their liens from a party who posts a surety bond securing the liens. By the statute’s plain language, under the circumstances our answer is yes.
