Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 5 NFP memorandum decision(s))

For publication opinions today (1):

In Amy L. Brown v. Adrian Lunsford , a 17-page opinion, Judge Barnes writes:

Amy Brown appeals the trial court’s order granting visitation with Brown’s daughter, S.B., to Adrian Lunsford, Brown’s former boyfriend, who is unrelated to S.B. We reverse.

Brown presents three issues for our review, which we restate as:

I. whether the trial court had “jurisdiction” to order visitation between Lunsford and S.B.;
II. whether Lunsford should have joined S.B. as a necessary party in the paternity action involving the parties’ child A.L.; and
III. whether the trial court abused its discretion by ordering visitation between S.B. and Lunsford. * * *

Brown has waived her contentions that the trial court erred when it adjudicated this matter pursuant to the UCCJA. Brown also waived her claim that Lunsford failed to join S.B. as a necessary party to this action. Nonetheless, we conclude the trial court abused its discretion when it ordered visitation between S.B. and Lunsford. We reverse.
