NFP civil decisions today (1):

In Scott Charles Kuhn v. Midfirst Bank (mem. dec.), a 5-page opinion in a case with a pro se appellant, Judge Robb writes in footnote 1:

Throughout this litigation, Kuhn has referred to subject matter jurisdiction, standing, and the real party in interest rule as interchangeable concepts, see Fish v. 2444 Acquisitions, LLC, 46 N.E.3d 1261, 1265 (Ind. Ct. App. 2015) (distinguishing subject matter jurisdiction, standing, and the real party in interest rule), trans. denied, but the brunt of his argument on appeal seems to address the issue of subject matter jurisdiction. To the extent Kuhn challenges MidFirst’s standing or real party in interest status, we conclude these issues are waived because Kuhn failed to present coherent argument with respect to either. See Ind. Appellate Rule 46(A)(8)(a) (requiring each contention in the appellant’s brief be supported by cogent reasoning and citations to relevant authority); see also Ramsey v. Review Bd. of Ind. Dep’t of Workforce Dev., 789 N.E.2d 486, 487 (Ind. Ct. App. 2003) (stating the reviewing court need not address arguments that are too poorly developed to be understood).
