Justices deny transfer for two dozen cases

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Supreme Court rejected 24 requests for transfer last week, granting transfer in just one case which already has been decided.

The court’s transfer disposition list for the week ending June 28 shows transfer was granted in Valentin Escobedo v. State of Indiana, 71S03-1306-CR-455, which was decided last week.

Of the 24 petitions denied transfer, all but two decisions were unanimous. Justices Steven David and Loretta Rush would have granted transfer in Darryl Shepherd v. State of Indiana, 49A05-1111-CR600, in which the Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed a conviction and sentence for possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon in a killing. Darryl Shepard appealed, claiming self-defense.

Justices Mark Massa and Robert Rucker would have taken Loren H. Fry v. Terry L. Schroder and Robert C. Schroder, Individually and as beneficiaries and personal representatives of the Estate of David H. Schroder, 09A02-1206-CT-474. In that case, a Court of Appeals panel affirmed a Cass Superior Court ruling and rejected Loren Fry’s interlocutory appeal of a trial court order denying his motion to stay a civil proceeding against him pending the resolution of a criminal murder charge against him in the shooting death of his neighbor, David H. Schroder.
