The Court of Appeals will be on the road on Thursday, hearing cases in Franklin and Evansville. It will hear its 180th and 181st cases on the road since 2001 when the court began regularly hearing arguments at venues around the state.

State v. Karl Jackson will be heard at Franklin College at 10 a.m. in the Branigin Room of the Napolitan Student Center. It marks the court ;s fifth visit to Franklin. The three-judge panel includes Chief Judge John G. Baker, and judges Carr L. Darden, and Margret G. Robb.

The court is asked to decide under what circumstances a person may be convicted of driving with a suspended license for the status of being a habitual violator of traffic laws. The case originated in Hamilton Superior Court.

Sergio Campos v. State will be heard at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville at 2 p.m. (Central Time) at the Health Professions Center Mitchell Auditorium. It marks the court ;s sixth trip to USI. The three-member panel includes judges Melissa S. May, Nancy H. Vaidik, and Michael P. Barnes.

The court is asked to decide several questions regarding procedure and constitutional law in this search and seizure case, including whether a passenger who does not own the car in which he is stopped has standing to challenge a police search that uncovers drugs he owns; whether police, after completing a traffic stop for speeding, may then tell a driver a search of his car is "necessary" when no additional evidence of a crime is apparent; and whether police officers may secretly record conversations between people waiting in a police car when they have not been given their Miranda warnings that they have a right to remain silent. The case originated in Lake Superior Court.

At each location, following oral arguments, the court will answer questions about the judicial process in Indiana from the public and from students.

  1. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
