But it doesn't stop people from filing the suits to intimidate others or gain publicity ... or naming multiple parties in a suit even if the attorney knows the judge is likely to dismiss it or carve some of those parties out. Just makes a lot of noise and wastes time and money.

As a longtime elected official, one gets accustomed to being sued. When people threaten me with a suit, my standard response is along the lines of "Okay, thanks for letting me know."

The Fishers segment would be 5.7 miles, from 96th Street (the Marion County - Hamilton County line) north to 146th Street (the border between Fishers and Noblesville).
106th to 126th is estimated to cost about that $9mil mark, i think Fadness wants a bond for $12 mil to pay for that first leg.

Still sitting in a barn in Logansport AFAIK. Nothing done on repairs.

Wonder why its taking so long to get it Repaired? You would think that would be a top Priority to get it Repaired.

Probably to the owner.  Not to the party responsible for damage, or their insurance.

Plus logistics of moving it to repair location.

I opine the reason for slow progress on the repair, is a lack of agreement between the owner who wants original parts used, and a lack of cheap sources for those parts that would make the cheap insurance company happy.  Maybe the trucking company is the hold-out if they have to cover what the insurer won't.
