Justices accept 3 cases, including environmental suit

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court agreed last week to take three cases – an environmental damages lawsuit, an insurance dispute and a woman’s challenge to her drug charges.

The justices released their transfer list Monday, which included 21 denials for transfer. They did accept:

•    James T. Mitchell v. 10th and the Bypass, LLC, and Elway, Inc., 53S01-1303-PL-222, in which James Mitchell lost his appeal of a ruling in Monroe Circuit Court that found he had caused environmental damage while running a dry cleaning business on the same site of 10th and The Bypass LLC. The LLC sued Mitchell, and the trial court initially granted his request for partial summary judgment. It was later vacated after the LLC presented evidence from a former employee of Mitchell’s who testified to chemical spills. The Indiana Court of Appeals upheld their ruling on rehearing in December.

•    Howard Justice v. American Family Mutual Insurance Co., 49S02-1303-PL-221, in which the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of American Family Mutual Insurance Co. in a dispute over whether it should pay Howard Justice’s claim for underinsured motorist coverage.

•    Danielle Kelly v. State of Indiana, 30S01-1303-CR-220, in which the Court of Appeals twice upheld the denial of Danielle Kelly’s motion to suppress evidence found after the vehicle she was riding in was stopped and searched by police. She claimed on interlocutory appeal that the search violated the federal and state constitutions, as well as that statements she made to police should be suppressed. The COA granted Kelly’s petition for rehearing, but again affirmed the denial to suppress evidence.  Both decisions by the appeals court were in not-for-publication decisions.

  1. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
