9:45 a.m. 15A01-1110-MI-537. The State filed a motion to transfer cash seized from Dante Adams to federal authorities for the purpose of commencing forfeiture proceedings. The State did not serve the motion on Adams. The Dearborn Circuit Court granted the State's motion and denied Adams' motion for rehearing. The Court of Appeals concluded that because the statute permitting the State to transfer seized property to federal authorities contemplates a lawful search, Adams was entitled to challenge the legality of the search and seizure prior to transfer of the cash to federal authorities. The State therefore erred in failing to give Adams notice of its motion. The error, however, was harmless because Adams could not show prejudice.

  1. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?

  2. That comment on this e-site, which reports on every building, courtroom or even insignificant social movement by beltway sycophants as being named to honor the yet-quite-alive former chief judge, is truly laughable!

  3. Is this a social parallel to the Mosby prosecutions in Baltimore? Progressive ideology ever seeks Pilgrims to burn at the stake. (I should know.)

  4. The Conour embarrassment is an example of why it would be a good idea to NOT name public buildings or to erect monuments to "worthy" people until AFTER they have been dead three years, at least. And we also need to stop naming federal buildings and roads after a worthless politician whose only achievement was getting elected multiple times (like a certain Congressman after whom we renamed the largest post office in the state). Also, why have we renamed BOTH the Center Township government center AND the new bus terminal/bum hangout after Julia Carson?

  5. Other than a complete lack of any verifiable and valid historical citations to back your wild context-free accusations, you also forget to allege "ate Native American children, ate slave children, ate their own children, and often did it all while using salad forks rather than dinner forks." (gasp)
