Dante Adams v. State of Indiana - 3/28/13

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.

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
