Indiana Court of Appeals

Ashley T. Tucker v. Michelle R. Harrison, M.D.
79A05-1108-CT-404
Civil tort. Affirms judgment in favor of Dr. Harrison on Tucker’s medical malpractice complaint. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in excluding Tucker’s expert testimony, limiting her questioning of a witness about possible bias, or in instructing the jury.

Ryan E. Bean v. State of Indiana
91A02-1109-CR-906
Criminal. Reverses two convictions of Class A felony child molesting and remands for retrials if the state so chooses. Concludes Bean was in custody when he finally admitted to the molestation. Bean’s confession was obtained in violation of Miranda protocol and shouldn’t have been admitted into evidence in his trials in Carroll and White counties.  

Jorge Henriquez v. State of Indiana
49A02-1201-CR-6
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class D felony resisting law enforcement. The trial court did not err in not interrogating the jurors or taking other remedial action regarding alleged improper influence of an alternate juror, so Henriquez’s claim of fundamental error fails.

Gregory L. Brown v. Review Board of the Indiana Dept. of Workforce Development, and H & H Mechanical of Michiana LLC (NFP)
93A02-1202-EX-133
Agency action. Affirms denial of unemployment benefits.

71A03-1202-CR-98
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor neglect of a dependent.

71A04-1201-CR-24

  1. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  2. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  3. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  4. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?

  5. Once again Indiana has not only shown what little respect it has for animals, but how little respect it has for the welfare of the citizens of the state. Dumping manure in a pond will most certainly pollute the environment and ground water. Who thought of this spiffy plan? No doubt the livestock industry. So all the citizens of Indiana have to suffer pollution for the gain of a few livestock producers who are only concerned about their own profits at the expense of everyone else who lives in this State. Shame on the Environmental Rules Board!
