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. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
