7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Kristine P. Purcell v. Bank of America
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Fort Wayne Division, Judge James T. Moody.
Civil. Reverses dismissal of Purcell’s common-law claims against the bank without prejudice to allow her to refile in state court. Remands with instructions to enter judgment for the bank on all of Purcell’s state and federal claims. Sections 1681t(b)(1)(F) and Section 16811h(e)of 15 U.S.C. are compatible, and Section 1681(t)(b) would preempt Purcell’s state-law theories.
Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.
Indiana Court of Appeals
Michael Freed v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class B felony robbery. Finds the evidence admitted regarding Freed’s uncharged misconduct was properly admitted for the non-character purpose of corroborating Freed’s confession to the instant robbery. The record evidence is sufficient to sustain his conviction.
Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.
The Indiana Supreme Court denied transfer to 31 cases and dismissed one for the week ending Sept. 30.
