Indiana Supreme Court takes 4 cases

The Indiana Supreme Court granted transfer in four cases for the week ending Jan. 27 and denied transfer in 11 others.

One of the cases the justices accepted involves a man who was arrested for criminal trespass after becoming upset about a fee for a bank printout. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed the trial court in that case – Walter Lyles vs. State of Indiana – holding insufficient evidence existed to support the conviction.

The Supreme Court also accepted two cases involving child support, along with Tim Berry, Auditor, State of Indiana; M. Caroline Spotts, Principal Clerk of the Indiana House of Representatives; and the State of Indiana v. William Crawford, the case involving legislative rules disputes.

Chief Justice Randall Shepard and Justice Frank Sullivan voted to grant transfer in a case in which a couple filed a complaint against the city of Evansville over a faulty sewer line. The majority, however, declined to take the case.
