Indiana Supreme Court accepts one case; denies transfer to seven

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana’s high court has granted transfer in a case that left the Court of Appeals divided.

In Corey Fletcher v. State of Indiana, Nos. 79S02-1204-CR-208 and 79A02-1009-CR-1096,  the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed a trial court’s denial of Corey Fletcher’s motion for discharge, but Judge Ezra Friedlander dissented.

The transfer list  shows six cases the justices unanimously denied transfer, and one that the court did not unanimously deny – Jerome Maxwell v. State of Indiana, No. 49A04-1101-CR-6. Justice Frank Sullivan would have granted transfer in that case, in which Jerome Maxwell raised several issues for review, including whether his conviction of two Class C felony child molesting charges violated double jeopardy.

Other cases denied transfer were: Alexander Gul v. City of Bloomington Housing and Neighborhood Development Department, No. 53A01-1106-OV-256; Justin L. Hargrove v. State of Indiana, No. 67A01-1103-CR-112; State of Indiana v. Johnnie S. McCaa, No. 56A04-1107-CR-341; Brett Zagorac v. State of Indiana, No. 64A03-1011-CR-589; In the Matter of the Estate of Melissa K. Patrick: Yvonne Griffith as Personal Representative of the Estate of Melissa K. Patrick v. Jason Patrick, No. 17A03-1104-ES-190; and Bart A. Dewald v. State of Indiana, No. 49A04-1101-CR-6.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
