Highlights from Current Issue
 

 The hourly rate for out-of-court work for lawyers representing indigent parties and child welfare gases has increased from $40 per hour to $50 per hour.

• The trial court committed reversible error by including “attempt” in its instructions to the jury as to the offenses of reckless aggravated assault that Defendant was facing. The Court explained that because the definition of reckless aggravated assault requires a completed, reckless act, it is logically and legally impossible to attempt to cause bodily injury.

• In this slip and fall case, the Court held that the decision of where to put the wet-floor sign was operational in nature and cannot be viewed as a planning decision. Therefore, the discretionary/planning function exception to the removal of immunity does not apply to shield the actions of the custodians in this case, and the school did not have immunity under the Governmental Tort Liability Act.
