The following Indiana Tax Court opinions were posted after IL deadline Thursday:
Nick Popovich v. Indiana Department of State Revenue
49T10-1010-TA-53
Tax. Involves Popovich’s first motion to compel the Indiana Department of State Revenue to respond to 53 of his discovery requests and the department’s motion for a protective order seeking to protect from disclosure of the information and documents he requested.

Nick Popovich v. Indiana Department of State Revenue
49T10-1010-TA-53
Tax. Denies second motion to compel in its entirety. Popovich sought original documents of the requested documents be brought to the deposition pursuant to Indiana Trial Rules 30(B)(5) and 34. The expectation that the movant will make a reasonable effort to resolve discovery disputes with the opposing party before moving to enforce, modify, or limit discovery holds true even in instances where, like here, the entire discovery process has been imbued with acrimony.

Friday’s opinions
Indiana Court of Appeals

Marvin Garner v. State of Indiana
49A02-1310-CR-834
Criminal. Affirms aggregate 60-year sentence for four counts of Class A felony child molesting. His offenses were committed against multiple victims and against the same victims repeatedly, and his victims were young and he abused this position of trust.

The Indiana Supreme Court and Tax Court posted no opinions by IL deadline Friday. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals posted no Indiana decisions by IL deadline.

  1. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  2. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  3. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.

  4. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  5. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)
