The following opinion was posted after IL deadline Friday:

Indiana Tax Court

Wireless Advocates, LLC v. Indiana Department of State Revenue
49T10-1109-TA-60
Tax. Denies the Indiana Department of State Revenue’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Wireless Advocate’s petition, which was originally filed by a member of the company instead of an attorney, does not deserve the terminal result of dismissal. The department must file its answer within 30 days.

Monday’s opinions
7th Circuit Court of Appeals

Joshua Resendez v. Brian Smith
11-1121
U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, Judge Sarah Evans Barker.
Civil. Affirms dismissal of petition for writ of habeas corpus, in which Resendez claimed the state denied him his constitutional right to counsel in a sentence correction proceeding under I.C. 35-38-1-15.  His claims may not be presented via that statute as his motion is a collateral challenge to his sentence.

Indiana Supreme Court and Tax Court posted no opinions at IL deadline.

James E. True v. State of Indiana (NFP)
24A01-1110-CR-532
Criminal. Reverses conviction of Class A misdemeanor invasion of privacy due to double jeopardy violation and orders conviction vacated. Affirms conviction of Class D felony residential entry.

Cynthia Sue Damron v. GMAC Mortgage, LLC (NFP)
20A03-1110-MF-514
Mortgage foreclosure. Affirms denial of Damron’s Indiana Trial Rule 60(B) motion for relief from judgment and subsequent motion to correct error.

In Re the Paternity of A.W., T.W. v. J.P. (NFP)
68A05-1202-JP-59
Juvenile paternity. Affirms order granting father J.P. custody.

James Johns v. Pike County Commissioners (NFP)

Miscellaneous. Affirms judgment on the pleadings as to Johns’ claim concerning a road closure agreement and dismisses the rest of the appeal as moot.

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
