Justices decline to take 12 cases

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court accepted none of the 12 cases before it on transfer request last week.

The cases included a lawsuit involving HDNET LLC and the North American Boxing Council in which there was a dispute over idea misappropriation and civil conversion involving the origin of televised mixed martial arts through HDNET Fights. The Court of Appeals had reversed partial summary judgment in favor of the boxing council.


The justices also denied transfer to the case of Michael Carpenter, who sought to have evidence thrown out that was collected when police arrived at his home to try to serve an arrest warrant for a different man. Carpenter was convicted of Class B felony conspiracy to commit dealing methamphetamine. The Court of Appeals ruled Carpenter’s Fourth Amendment rights weren't violated.

The complete list of transfer denials is available on the court’s website.

The Supreme Court also declined Monday to take an appeal by an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officer facing criminal charges following a fatal accident. David Bisard sought to keep blood alcohol test results out of his criminal trial.
