The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Thursday:
United States of America v. Lamar E. Sanders
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Hammond Division, Judge Joseph S. Van Bokkelen.
Criminal. Affirms convictions of kidnapping and extortion and 25-year sentence. Rejects Sanders argument that the District Court violated the Due Process Clause by admitting into evidence each of Timicka Nobles’ three identifications of him; his challenge to the District Court’s decision to limit cross-examination on Nobles’ prior convictions; and his claim that the District Court should have applied the lower of the two applicable mandatory minimum sentences.

U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, Judge Robert L. Miller Jr.
Civil. Affirms $600,000 sanction against SonCo for contempt of court by not following a court order. The $600,000 is actually a gross understatement of the harm caused by SonCo’s contempt for failing to take over operation of Alco’s wells within 90 days as ordered.
