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. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  4. A high ranking bureaucrat with Ind sup court is heading up an organization celebrating the formal N word!!! She must resign and denounce! http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
