Appellate court travels for arguments

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

As part of its “Appeals on Wheels” initiative, the Indiana Court of Appeals will hit the road this week to hear arguments.

On Tuesday, two panels of judges will hear arguments in locations outside of the Court of Appeals courtroom, although one panel won’t have to travel far. Chief Judge John Baker and Judges Edward Najam Jr. and Nancy Vaidik will hear the case of R.J.H. v. State of Indiana, No. 71A03-1003-JV-206, in the Indiana Supreme Court courtroom. The case originates out of St. Joseph Probate Court, in which R.J.H. argues the court abused its discretion by awarding custody of him to the Department of Correction. Arguments begin at 10:30 a.m. and will be webcast live.

Judges James Kirsch, Margret Robb and Paul Mathias will be in northwestern Indiana hearing arguments in Jamarr Da-Juan Williams v. State of Indiana, No.45A03-1001-CR-39. Jamarr Da-Juan Williams argues that the trial court committed fundamental error in refusing to instruct the jury regarding the lesser included offense of involuntary manslaughter. He was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, battery, and attempted battery.

Arguments begin at 1 p.m. CDT at Valparaiso High School, 2727 Campbell St., Valparaiso.

  1. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
