The Indiana Supreme Court has reversed an order it issued Monday that prevented an appellant from bringing in a utility truck bucket to arguments scheduled Thursday.

Earlier this week, the justices issued the order in Anthony Wade v. Terex-Telelect, Inc., 29S05-1209-CT-557, in response to Terex-Telelect’s motion to prevent use of oversized equipment at oral argument. A paralegal in the court’s administration office confirmed that Wade’s defense planned to bring items that were about 4 feet tall by 4 feet wide and 2 feet deep.A paralegal in the court’s administration office confirmed that Wade planned to bring items that were about 4 feet tall by 4 feet wide and 2 feet deep.

“Appellate Rule 53(F) contemplates that physical exhibits might be used at oral argument, but in this instance, we are persuaded that the size of these items will be disruptive to the proceedings and, because photographs of the items are in the appendix, the presence of the items themselves is not necessary for Wade to present an effective appellate argument,” Acting Chief Justice Robert Rucker wrote for the court.

But on Wednesday, the reconsidered and has allowed the parties to use physical exhibits during oral argument, "so long as their set-up- and removal does not interfere with the other oral arguments being heard" Thursday. Chief Justice Brent Dickson signed Wednesday's order.

  1. Thanks for this article. We live in Evansville, IN and are aware of how bad the child abuse is here. Can you please send us the statistics for here in Vanderburgh, County. Our web site is: www.ritualabusefree.org Thanks again

  2. This ruling has no application to Indiana. The tail end of the article is misleading where it states criminal penalties await those who refuse a test. This is false. An administrative license suspension is what awaits you. No more, no less.

  3. Yellow journalism much??? "The outcome underscores that the direction of U.S. immigration policy will be determined in large part by this fall's presidential election, a campaign in which immigration already has played an outsized role." OUTSIZED? by whose standards? Also this: "In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help immigrants a friendlier reception." Ah, also, did you forget an adjective at the *** marks ahead by any chance? Thinking of one that rhymes with bald eagle? " In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help *** immigrants a friendlier reception."

  4. Definition of furnish. : to provide (a room or building) with furniture. : to supply or give (something) to someone or something. : to supply or give to (someone) something that is needed or wanted. Judge Kincaid: if furnish means provide, and the constitution says the provider in a uni is the township, how on earth are they seperated??

  5. I never filed a law suite. I had no money for a lawyer. In 2010 I presented for MRI/with contrast. The technician stuck my left arm three times with needle to inject dye. I was w/out O2 for two minutes, not breathing, no ambulance was called. I suffered an Embolism ,Myocardia infarction. Permanent memory loss, heart damage. After the event, I could not remember what I did five seconds earlier. I had no-one to help me. I lost my dental hygiene career, been homeless, etc.
