Several courts around the state are closed today after heavy snow and ice hit Indiana this week. The weather has even caused the Indiana General Assembly to postpone hearings for a second day.

The Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and related agencies, including the clerk’s office, are closed today. The courts, which have rarely closed over the years, are scheduled to open at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago is closed today as are all of the federal courthouses in the Northern District of Indiana. The Indianapolis Division in the Southern District of Indiana is scheduled to open at 10:30 a.m.

The Marion Superior and Circuit courts and the Marion County clerk’s office are also closed today. Courts in Mishawaka and St. Joseph counties are closed.

Several city and town courts are closed – Anderson City Court, Edgewood and Pendleton Town courts in Madison County – as well as Franklin Township Small Claims Court in Marion County. The 7 p.m. court session in Franklin City Court in Johnson County has been cancelled. The courthouses in Boone, Cass, Clay, Hancock, Henry, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, and Tipton counties are closed.

The Indiana Senate has rescheduled committee meetings that were set for today, including the Senate Judiciary Committee. The Indiana House of Representatives has also cancelled committee hearings. Both chambers are closed for a second day. A make-up session day may be held Feb. 11.

Many law firms have asked attorneys to work remotely or have instituted a delay in coming into the office.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
