Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
David Delagrange v. State of Indiana
49A02-1010-CR-1086
Criminal. Affirms partial denial of motion to dismiss. The state has alleged that Delagrange knowingly or intentionally attempted to create an image of sexual conduct, which is a sufficient statement of Delagrange’s mental state to survive a motion to dismiss. Remands for further proceedings. Judge Baker dissents.

Nathan D. Hawkins v. State of Indiana

79A02-1101-CR-100
Criminal. Affirms denial of Hawkins' sentence modification. The 365-day period during which the trial court has sole discretion to grant a modification began when Hawkins was originally sentenced, not when he was re-sentenced after appeal. Because his motion was filed outside of the one-year period and the prosecutor didn’t consent to a modification, the modification is properly denied. Chief Judge Robb dissents with separate opinion.

Donald Troutner v. State of Indiana
91A04-1012-CR-796
Criminal. Reverses conviction of Class A misdemeanor battery and concurrent sentence because the state presented the same evidence to also support Troutner’s conviction of Class B felony robbery. The trial court erred when it limited the testimony of Troutner’s niece, but it was a harmless error, so the robbery conviction is affirmed.

BP Products North America, et al. v. Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, et al.

93A02-0905-EX-490
Agency action. On rehearing, reverses the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission’s decision that BP Products was not a public utility with respect to the furnishing by it of natural gas it purchased from the Northern Indiana Public Service Co. to Marsulex. The COA declared this issue to be moot as a result of the resolution of other issues on appeal, which was an incorrect conclusion. Remands for further proceedings and affirms original decision in all other matters.  

Donald Glorioso v. Carla Glorioso (NFP)
64A03-1012-DR-620
Domestic relation. Affirms finding Donald Glorioso in contempt of court in a dissolution matter.

Gregory D. Harris v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A04-1012-CR-787
Criminal. Affirms revocation of placement on home detention.

Vincent B. Hunter, Jr. v. State of Indiana (NFP)
71A04-1012-CR-788
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class B felony burglary and Class D felony animal cruelty.

Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
