11 a.m. 49A04-1207-JV-379. In March 2012, C.B. was alleged to be a delinquent child for committing what would have been battery if committed by an adult. One month later, the State and C.B. entered into a delinquent child admission agreement whereby the State dismissed the delinquency petition in a different cause for C.B.’s admission in the instant one. Also, if C.B. did not violate the terms of the agreement for 90 days, the State would dismiss the immediate petition. Six days later, C.B. was arrested for battery. A petition was filed for this offense but subsequently dropped. C.B. argued that because the petition had been dropped, the State failed to establish probable cause that she had violated her admission agreement. The State argues that this court lacks jurisdiction, because C.B.’s admission agreement is not a final judgment.

  1. I'm not sure what's more depressing: the fact that people would pay $35,000 per year to attend an unaccredited law school, or the fact that the same people "are hanging in there and willing to follow the dean’s lead in going forward" after the same school fails to gain accreditation, rendering their $70,000 and counting education worthless. Maybe it's a good thing these people can't sit for the bar.

  2. Such is not uncommon on law school startups. Students and faculty should tap Bruce Green, city attorney of Lufkin, Texas. He led a group of studnets and faculty and sued the ABA as a law student. He knows the ropes, has advised other law school startups. Very astute and principled attorney of unpopular clients, at least in his past, before Lufkin tapped him to run their show.

  3. Not that having the appellate records on Odyssey won't be welcome or useful, but I would rather they first bring in the stray counties that aren't yet connected on the trial court level.

  4. Aristotle said 350 bc: "The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of an modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

  5. Oh yes, lifetime tenure. The Founders gave that to the federal judges .... at that time no federal district courts existed .... so we are talking the Supreme Court justices only in context ....so that they could rule against traditional marriage and for the other pet projects of the sixties generation. Right. Hmmmm, but I must admit, there is something from that time frame that seems to recommend itself in this context ..... on yes, from a document the Founders penned in 1776: " He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."
