9 a.m.  49S02-1402-PL-80. Sanchez, a former state employee, petitioned for judicial review of an adverse determination by the Ethics Commission finding Sanchez violated a prohibition on personal use of state property and barring Sanchez from future state employment.  The trial court granted Sanchez’s petition and vacated the Commission’s determination.  The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding among other things that a prior probable cause determination made by a criminal court had preclusive effect in the subsequent ethics proceedings against Sanchez.  Indiana State Ethics Comm’n v. Sanchez, 997 N.E.2d 16 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated.  The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
