7th Circuit Court of Appeals

United States of America v. Adam Williams
09-3174
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Hammond Division, Judge James T. Moody.
Criminal. Affirms convictions of and sentence for illegal possession of a firearm as a felon and various drug distribution offenses. Williams couldn’t satisfy his burden under either prong of the Strickland standard, so the District Court’s refusal to investigate further his perceived problems with his attorney is a harmless abuse of discretion. Because Williams was convicted of a violent felony, his claim that Section 922(g)(1) unconstitutionally infringes on his right to possess a firearm is without merit.

Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Alva Curtis v. State of Indiana
49A02-0911-CR-1106
Criminal. Reverses denial of Curtis’ motion to dismiss and discharge criminal proceedings. It is undisputed that he is mentally ill and disabled to an extent that he will never recover and become competent to stand trial. It was a violation of his due process rights to deny his motion.

State of Indiana v. Genaro Luna
09A02-0907-CR-694
Criminal. Affirms acquittal on eight counts of child molesting. Waives state’s question of law about whether the trial court should not have admitted evidence of the victim’s previous allegations of molesting against someone who was not charged. Also, because factual determinations are not appropriate on appeal as a reserved question of law, declines to review the trial court’s decision to admit the evidence.

Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles v. Seth McNeil
02A03-1001-MI-90
Miscellaneous. Reverses order reinstating McNeil’s driving privileges, which had been suspended for 10 years after he was found to be a habitual traffic violator. The two-year statute of limitations under Indiana Code Section 34-11-2-4 does not apply.

Stephanie Deel v. Conrad Deel (NFP)
73A01-0912-CV-606
Civil. Reverses calculation of Conrad Deel’s arrearage. Affirms in all other respects. Remands for further proceedings.

Jerimiah Morris v. State of Indiana (NFP)
34A05-1001-CR-16
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class D felony possession of marijuana.

Ellington Jeffrey, et al. v. Kirsh and Kirsh, et al. (NFP)
45A03-1001-CT-31

Warren Rodrick Bullock v. State of Indiana (NFP)
32A01-0908-CR-401
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class D felony criminal confinement and reverses conviction of Class D felony domestic battery. Remands for trial court to enter a conviction for the lesser included offense of Class A misdemeanor domestic battery and sentence Bullock accordingly.

52A05-1002-CR-84
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class C felony sexual misconduct with a minor.

R.J. v. Review Board of the Indiana Dept. of Workforce Development, et al. (NFP)
93A02-1002-EX-243
