Indiana Supreme Court takes 9 cases

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court granted transfer to nine cases – six of them criminal – and denied transfer to 30 for the week ending June 8.

The appeals include two that divided Court of Appeals panels: Margaret Kosarko v. William A. Padula, Administrator of the Estate of Daniel L. Herndobler, Deceased, No. 64S05-1206-CT-305, and Todd J. Crider v. State of Indiana, No. 91S05-1206-CR-306.

In Kosarko, the appellate panel was divided over whether prejudgment interest should be paid to a car crash victim who was awarded $210,000 in a jury trial.

In Crider, the judges were divided over whether a man could challenge his sentence after pleading guilty in White Superior Court to a Class D felony charge of theft and to being a habitual offender.

Also taken for review were:

•    Andre Gonzalez v. State of Indiana, No. 45S03-1206-CR-307, in which the appeals court reversed the denial of Andre Gonzalez’s petition to remove his lifetime sex offender designation.

•    Felix C. Sickels v. State of Indiana, No. 20S03-1206-CR-308, in which a panel affirmed in part and reversed in part and remanded a man’s conviction of three counts of nonsupport of a dependent child.

The court also granted transfer then remanded to the Court of Appeals Lawrence Ray Holley, II v. State of Indiana, No. 79S02-1206-PC-320, and vacated that court’s not-for-publication decision. In that case, the appeals court affirmed the denial of Lawrence Holley’s petition for post-conviction relief. On rehearing, the judges affirmed that decision and expanded upon the “mailbox rule.”

Other cases granted transfer are: Roger L. Bushorn v. State of Indiana, No. 40S01-1206-CR-309; Curtis A. Bethea v. State of Indiana, No. 18S05-1206-PC-304; Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Insurance v. Tim Black, as Husband and Personal Representative of Kay Black, Deceased, No. 64S05-1206-CT-305; and Holiday Hospitality Franchising, Inc. v. Amco Insurance Co., No. 33S01-1206-CT-312.

  1. Family court judges never fail to surprise me with their irrational thinking. First of all any man who abuses his wife is not fit to be a parent. A man who can't control his anger should not be allowed around his child unsupervised period. Just because he's never been convicted of abusing his child doesn't mean he won't and maybe he hasn't but a man that has such poor judgement and control is not fit to parent without oversight - only a moron would think otherwise. Secondly, why should the mother have to pay? He's the one who made the poor decisions to abuse and he should be the one to pay the price - monetarily and otherwise. Yes it's sad that the little girl may be deprived of her father, but really what kind of father is he - the one that abuses her mother the one that can't even step up and do what's necessary on his own instead the abused mother is to pay for him???? What is this Judge thinking? Another example of how this world rewards bad behavior and punishes those who do right. Way to go Judge - NOT.

  2. Right on. Legalize it. We can take billions away from the drug cartels and help reduce violence in central America and more unwanted illegal immigration all in one fell swoop. cut taxes on the savings from needless incarcerations. On and stop eroding our fourth amendment freedom or whatever's left of it.

  3. "...a switch from crop production to hog production "does not constitute a significant change."??? REALLY?!?! Any judge that cannot see a significant difference between a plant and an animal needs to find another line of work.

  4. Why do so many lawyers get away with lying in court, Jamie Yoak?

  5. Future generations will be amazed that we prosecuted people for possessing a harmless plant. The New York Times came out in favor of legalization in Saturday's edition of the newspaper.
