The following opinion was posted after IL deadline Friday:
Indiana Tax Court
Wireless Advocates, LLC v. Indiana Department of State Revenue
Tax. Denies the Indiana Department of State Revenue’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Wireless Advocate’s petition, which was originally filed by a member of the company instead of an attorney, does not deserve the terminal result of dismissal. The department must file its answer within 30 days.
7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Joshua Resendez v. Brian Smith
U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, Judge Sarah Evans Barker.
Civil. Affirms dismissal of petition for writ of habeas corpus, in which Resendez claimed the state denied him his constitutional right to counsel in a sentence correction proceeding under I.C. 35-38-1-15. His claims may not be presented via that statute as his motion is a collateral challenge to his sentence.
Indiana Supreme Court and Tax Court posted no opinions at IL deadline.
