9 a.m. 29A02-1208-CR-694. When a police officer initiated a traffic stop, Anderson opened the door and ran. He was found hiding in a backyard shed. A woman standing on her back deck, had seen Anderson run by and heard a “thump, thump, thump.” Anderson told police he had thrown out a bag of marijuana; jail officials found marijuana on him when he was searched at the jail. Approximately an hour later, the woman saw a firearm in a pile of snow on her deck. Following a jury trial, Anderson was convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a Class B felony, and other offenses. The Court of Appeals affirmed in Anderson v. State, No. 29A02-1208-CR-694 (Ind. Ct. App. Apr. 4, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), trans. pending. Anderson has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal on grounds the evidence is insufficient to sustain the conviction.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
