Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Westville Correctional Facility, et al. v. George Finney
49A05-1103-PL-92
Civil plenary. Affirms grant of Finney’s verified petition for judicial review. Westville has not shown that the reviewing court committed reversible error. It is clear from the record that the agency’s action was without evidentiary foundation, let alone substantial evidence as required by Ind. Code 4-21.5-5-14(d)(5).

Shepherd Properties Co. v. International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, District Council 91
49A04-1010-PL-676
Civil plenary. Grants rehearing for the limited purpose of expanding upon the discussion of the issue presented on appeal concerning the propriety of an award of attorney fees under the Indiana Access to Public Records Act. The appellate court doesn’t disagree with the union’s contention, or prior observations from the court, that APRA does not include language explicitly precluding attorney fees from a third party. Conversely, APRA does not include language providing for payment of attorney fees by an intervenor, and the judges declined to write into the statute such a provision.

Karl Driver v. State of Indiana
71A05-1012-PC-795
Post conviction. Affirms denial of Driver’s verified motion to vacate judgment. Driver gained actual knowledge of the judgment when the trial court sent him a copy Sept. 7, 2010, but he did not file his motion until Oct. 29, 2010, which was outside the 30-day deadline for filing a notice of appeal.

Bradley A. Hole v. State of Indiana (NFP)
89A01-1012-CR-680
Criminal. Affirms denial of motion for pre-trial jail credit time.

James Clint Lawson v. State of Indiana (NFP)

31A01-1012-CR-627
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class B felony possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, Class D felony strangulation, Class A misdemeanor domestic battery, and Class A felony dealing in methamphetamine.

Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
