On April 7, 1994, the Judge Thomas H. Wood of the Augusta County Circuit Court decided Fried v. Dunkerton.
It is well established that pro se litigants are held to the same standards as trained legal counsel and are required to follow procedural rules. See Whatley v. State, 937 N.E.2d 1238 (Ind. Ct. App. 2010). Our appellate rules are not mere suggestions, and flagrant violations may result in waiver of the issues presented. See Ramsey v. Review Bd. of Ind. Dep’t of Workforce Dev., 789 N.E.2d 486 (Ind. Ct. App. 2003).
