Indiana Supreme Court

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear one argument this week.  At 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 2, the Court will hear Matter of N.E. 

In this case, the Marion Superior Court found N.E. to be a child in need of services and imposed a disposition affecting both parents.  On appeal, the Indiana Court of Appeals agreed with the father that, although the child was in need of services with respect to the mother, the juvenile court had not determined whether the father was willing and able to parent the child appropriately.  Thus, the Court of Appeals reversed in this published opinion.  The Indiana Supreme Court has granted transfer, vacating that opinion.

Indiana Court of Appeals

At 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 30, the Indiana Court of Appeals will hear argument in Cook v. Ford Motor Company.  In this case, parents brought a products liability suit against Ford claiming that their daughter was injured as a result of defects related to a passenger seat airbag.  After a jury trial resulted in a mistrial, Ford moved for summary judgment on several of the parents' claims.  The trial court granted Ford's motions.  The parents are appealing the summary judgment determinations.
