The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Wednesday.
In the matter of: New Energy Corporation; Appeal of: Natural Chem Holdings LLC
13-2501
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, Judge Robert L. Miller Jr. Affirms confirmation of sale of assets of New Energy Corp., which operated an ethanol plant and entered into bankruptcy, following a $2.5 million bid from a joint venture. Rejects Natural Chem Holdings’ opposition of confirmation, which contended that the establishment of the joint venture amounted to collusion that spoiled the auction. Natural Chem did not participate in the auction and thus could not have been harmed.  

Thursday’s opinions
Indiana Court of Appeals

Floyd County and Floyd County Plan Commission v. City of New Albany and New Albany City Plan Commission
22A05-1303-MI-139
Miscellaneous. Affirms summary judgment for the city on a lawsuit over whether the city or county has zoning jurisdiction over an unincorporated area outside the city limits. As a matter of law, the county is not entitled to exercise jurisdiction over the fringe area, nor is it required to consent to the city’s exercise of jurisdiction. Because the county has a population of less than 95,000, Indiana Code 36-7-4-205(f) determines which entity is entitled to exercise jurisdiction over the fringe area, and because the city is providing municipal services to the fringe area, it is entitled to the exercise of jurisdiction without the necessity of county approval.

Chauncey Krantz v. State of Indiana (NFP)
84A04-1302-CR-87
Criminal. Affirms 16-year sentence for Class C felony child molesting, Class C felony child exploitation and Class D felony possession of child pornography.

Ronald Lemon v. State of Indiana (NFP)
82A04-1305-CR-221
Criminal. Affirms Class D felony possession of marijuana conviction.

Jack Perkins, III v. State of Indiana (NFP)
82A04-1306-CR-315
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class A felony child molesting and Class B felony confinement.

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

  2. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  3. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  4. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  5. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.
