The Indiana Supreme Court has accepted five new cases.

At its weekly conference Aug. 28, justices granted transfer in two civil cases, two criminal cases, and a tax court case.

• Brenda and Darren Wagner v. Bobbi Yates, et al., No. 22A01-0710-CV-474: An underinsured motorist policy case from Floyd County. The Court of Appeals in April affirmed the lower court's granting of a motion for summary judgment in favor of American Standard Insurance Company of Wisconsin, the Wagners' automobile insurer. The court ruled that American Standard can set off payments made by State Farm under its Underinsured Motorist Coverage to the Wagners, and so it declined to address the issue of whether an anti-stacking clause exists in the policy.
• Kitchin Hospitality LLC v. Indiana Department of State Revenue, No. 49T10-0604-TA-35: A not-for-publication tax case from March where the Tax Court denied the state agency's motion for summary judgment and granted Kitchin's motion for summary judgment, holding that during the years at issue utilities consumed in some hotel rooms qualified for tangible personal property exemptions under Indiana Code § 6-2.5-5-35(2)(B)(i).
• Keith Myers v. Wesley C. Leedy, No. 85A02-0711-CV-999: a case from Wabash County where the Court of Appeals in April reversed and remanded a lower court's decision that Leedy's interest in a piece of property as a tenant survived the forfeiture of his landlord's land sale contract.
• Tony R. Gray v. State of Indiana, No. 10A01-0708-CR-356: a Clark County case where the Court of Appeals in a June not-for-publication opinion affirmed convictions on two counts of robbery and three counts of criminal confinement.
• State of Indiana v. Shannon Hollars, No. 12A02-0711-CR-979: a Clinton County case that the Court of Appeals reversed in June, concluding that the lower court abused its discretion in granting Hollars' motion to correct error. The appellate court found the three perceived errors - jury instruction, a discovery violation, and timing of the search warrant execution - didn't warrant a new attempted murder trial, either individually or collectively, and therefore the court reinstated the jury's verdict and the 22-year sentence.

  1. Or does the study merely wish they fade away? “It just hasn’t risen substantially in decades,” Joan Williams, director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California Hastings College of the Law told Law360. “What we should be looking for is progress, and that’s not what we’re seeing.” PROGRESS = less white males in leadership. Thus the heading and honest questions here ....

  2. One need not wonder why we are importing sex slaves into North America. Perhaps these hapless victims of human trafficking were being imported for a book of play with the Royal Order of Jesters? https://medium.com/@HeapingHelping/who-are-the-royal-order-of-jesters-55ffe6f6acea Indianapolis hosts these major pervs in a big way .... https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Royal-Order-of-Jesters-National-Office/163360597025389 I wonder what affect they exert on Hoosier politics? And its judiciary? A very interesting program on their history and preferences here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtgBdUtw26c

  3. Joseph Buser, Montgomery County Chief Prosecutor, has been involved in both representing the State of Indiana as Prosecutor while filing as Representing Attorney on behalf of himself and the State of Indiana in Civil Proceedings for seized cash and merchandise using a Verified Complaint For Forfeiture of Motor Vehicle, Us Currency And Reimbursement Of Costs, as is evident in Montgomery County Circuit Court Case Number 54C01-1401-MI-000018, CCS below, seen before Judge Harry Siamas, and filed on 01/13/2014. Sheriff Mark Castille is also named. All three defendants named by summons have prior convictions under Mr. Buser, which as the Indiana Supreme Court, in the opinion of The Matter of Mark R. McKinney, No. 18S00-0905-DI-220, stated that McKinney created a conflict of interest by simultaneously prosecuting drug offender cases while pocketing assets seized from defendants in those cases. All moneys that come from forfeitures MUST go to the COMMON SCHOOL FUND.

  4. I was incarcerated at that time for driving while suspended I have no felonies...i was placed on P block I remember several girls and myself asking about voting that day..and wasn't given a answer or means of voting..we were told after the election who won that was it.

  5. The number one way to reduce suffering would be to ban the breeding of fighting dogs. Fighting dogs maim and kill victim dogs Fighting dogs are the most essential piece of dog fighting Dog fighting will continue as long as fighting dogs are struggling to reach each other and maul another fih.longaphernalia
