10:30 a.m. 15A05-1208-CR-411 & 24A01-1210-CR-469. After Smith pleaded guilty to federal charges relating to an investment scheme, he moved to dismiss charges pending against him in the Franklin Circuit Court and in the Dearborn Superior Court, arguing that Indiana Code section 35-41-4-5 bars the subsequent state-court prosecutions.  The trial courts denied his motions to dismiss in part.  In the separate appeals that followed, the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial courts’ rulings in part and reversed in part in separate opinions.  Smith v. State, 993 N.E.2d 1182 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), trans. pending, and Smith v. State, 993 N.E.2d 1184 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), trans. pending.  Smith has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over both of the appeals.  The Court will hear the two cases in a combined oral argument, but otherwise has not consolidated the appeals.
