Defendant-Appellant Diana Meyer appeals the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Plaintiff-Appellee National City Bank. Meyer presents three issues for our review, which we consolidate and restate as two:
I. Whether the trial court erred in granting summary judgment for National City Bank.
II. Whether Weltman Weinberg & Reis Co, L.P.A. properly represents National City Bank in this action.
Conclusion (slip op. at 5-6): We conclude that the trial court properly entered summary judgment in favor of National City Bank. We further conclude that Jeannette M. Conrad of Weltman, Weinberg & Reis, Co., L.P.A. was the attorney of record for National City Bank, as reflected in the CCS of the trial court. Affirmed.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 3, 4, 5): Although we found no published cases in Indiana, we note with approval the determinations of other states that credit card agreements are contracts, and the issuance and use of a credit card creates a legally binding agreement . . . The Agreement expressly stated that it became binding on Meyer upon her use of the account, not upon her signature to the Agreement . . . There being no genuine issue of material fact as to Meyer’s consent to be bound by the Agreement and to the balance due and owing on the account, the trial court did not err in granting summary judgment in favor of National City Bank.
