On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Judge Sarah Evans Barker declared a Massachusetts woman in contempt of court for failing to remove her negative Internet postings about an Indianapolis cosmetic surgeon.

Barker, a federal judge in Indianapolis, ruled in favor of Dr. Barry Eppley earlier this month. She fined Lucille Iacovelli $7,750 and said the fine would grow $50 a day until Iacovelli removes negative comments and videos about Eppley from 31 Web sites.

Iacovelli has waged a Web campaign against Eppley since 2001. She says he botched her face-lift surgery and left her with breathing difficulties. She has told Eppley’s lawyers she would remove all her Internet postings if they deal with her outside of court.

Eppley, a former professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine, is co-owner of the Ology spas at the Clarian North and Clarian West medical centers. He filed suit in March after he said Iacovelli posted a message on his Web site saying she would commit suicide on an Internet video in April. Iacovelli accused Eppley of fabricating the suicide message.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
