Indiana Court of Appeals
Tequita Ramsey v. Lightning Corporation
49A02-1209-CC-705
Civil Collection. Affirms the trial court’s judgment in decertifying the class. In this case of first impression, the COA noted it could find no logical reason to hold that a trial court may never revoke or rescind an order certifying a class. To do so would mean that once a class action is certified, the class could not be later decertified even if facts and evidence discovered afterward suggests the class should not have been certified in the first place.

Frederick L. King v. State of Indiana
02A03-1212-CR-515
Criminal. Affirms the trial court’s judgment in sentencing Frederick King to 10 years with six years suspended to probation for robbery as a Class B felony. In a per curiam decision, the COA found the sentence was not inappropriate under Appellate Rule 7(B).

Fireworks West International, et al. v. David Prim, et al. (NFP)
49A04-1211-CT-582
Civil tort. Affirms denial of summary judgment in favor of David Prim, et al.

Criminal. Affirms denial of petitions for restricted disclosure of arrest records on dismissed charges.

Maria Torres v. Lovisa Enders (NFP)

49A02-1302-CT-122
Reverses and remands trial court order dismissing Maria Torres’ negligence claim against Lovisa Enders, holding that the trial court erred and should have granted summary judgment in favor of Torres on the issue of whether the complaint was timely brought.

42A04-1301-PL-29

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
