Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Antwon Abbott v. State of Indiana

34A02-1009-CR-1067
Criminal. Affirms convictions of and sentence for Class B felony possession of cocaine and Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in admitting into evidence the cocaine and marijuana found during the search of Abbott’s person. His argument fails that the statute that elevated his possession crime to a Class B felony is unconstitutionally vague as applied to him.

The City of Boonville v. American Cold Storage, et al.
87A01-1004-PL-167
Civil plenary. Reverses trial court holding that tax-exempt parcels shouldn’t be counted in determining the total number of landowners in the annexed territory. The clear language of Indiana Code 36-4-3-11(a)(1) indicates the Legislature’s intent that all property – whether taxable or tax exempt – should be counted in determining standing. The trial court erred in determining the landowners have standing to bring a declaratory judgment action. Remands for that action to be dismissed. Affirms that adjacent landowners do not have standing to join in the remonstrance under the 65 percent rule.

Khawar Muneer v. Shazi Muneer

32A01-1012-PO-658
Protective order. Affirms denial of Khawar Muneer’s motion to transfer venue. Shazi Muneer filed her petition in the county of her residence, in compliance with Indiana Code 34-26-5-4(b).

Jane D. Connolly v. Michael P. Connolly
02A04-1101-DR-4
Domestic relation. Affirms judgment in favor of Michael Connolly that Jane Connolly isn’t entitled to an equalization payment based on his ownership interest in commercial real estate. The only circumstances in which he would owe an equalization payment would be if the total value of his interest in Bantry Bay had increased. Affirms order that Jane pay a portion of Michael’s attorney fees.  

Yvette Albright v. Four Winds International
93A02-1010-EX-1324
Agency action. Reverses decision of the full Worker’s Compensation Board that Four Winds isn’t responsible for providing prescription Cymbalta to Albright. The evidence shows Albright suffers from paresthesias and Cymbalta helps treat the pain that arises from the condition. Remands for the board to enter an award in favor of Albright, directing Four Winds to provide her with Cymbalta or an equivalent medication to treat her paresthesias and determine how long the company should be required to provide such medication.

Kyle D. Rosenfield v. State of Indiana (NFP)
22A05-1007-CR-648
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class C felony auto theft.

Paternity of B.S.C.; S.C. v. N.A.S. (NFP)
55A04-1012-JP-780
Juvenile. Affirms order on emergency hearing which denied father’s request to modify physical custody.

Robert P. Webber v. State of Indiana (NFP)
71A03-1011-CR-647

48A04-1010-CC-629
Civil collection. Dismisses Howard’s appeal for lack of jurisdiction.

Warrum Construction Inc., et al. v. Yellow Book Sales and Distribution Co., Inc. (NFP)
49A05-1011-CC-722
Civil collection. Affirms summary judgment for Yellow Book in its complaint seeking payment from Warrum Construction of the balance owed under contracts for advertising.

Alfred M. Wiley v. State of Indiana (NFP)
45A04-1007-CR-417
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class B felony dealing in cocaine and Class C felony carrying a handgun without a license.

Vaughn Highley v. State of Indiana (NFP)

  1. I'm going to court the beginning of Oct. 2015 to establish visitation and request my daughters visits while she is in jail. I raised my grandchild for the first two and half years. She was born out of wedlock and the father and his adopted mother wantwd her aborted, they went as far as sueing my daughter for abortion money back 5mo. After my grandchild was born. Now because of depression and drug abuse my daughter lost custody 2 and a half years ago. Everyting went wrong in court when i went for custody my lawyer was thrown out and a replacment could only stay 45 min. The judge would not allow a postponement. So the father won. Now he is aleinating me and my daughter. No matter the amount of time spent getting help for my daughter and her doing better he runs her in the ground to the point of suicide because he wants her to be in a relationship with him. It is a sick game of using my grandchild as a pawn to make my daughter suffer for not wanting to be with him. I became the intervener in the case when my daughter first got into trouble. Because of this they gave me her visitation. Im hoping to get it again there is questions of abuse on his part and I want to make sure my grandchild is doing alright. I really dont understand how the parents have rights to walk in and do whatever they want when the refuse to stand up and raise the child at first . Why should it take two and a half years to decide you want to raise your child.The father used me so he could finish college get a job and stop paying support by getting custody. Support he was paying my daughter that I never saw.

  2. Pence said when he ordered the investigation that Indiana residents should be troubled by the allegations after the video went viral. Planned Parenthood has asked the government s top health scientists at the National Institutes of Health to convene a panel of independent experts to study the issues surrounding the little-known branch of medicine.

  4. The ADA acts as a tax upon all for the benefit of a few. And, most importantly, the many have no individual say in whether they pay the tax. Those with handicaps suffered in military service should get a pass, but those who are handicapped by accident or birth do NOT deserve that pass. The drivel about "equal access" is spurious because the handicapped HAVE equal access, they just can't effectively use it. That is their problem, not society's. The burden to remediate should be that of those who seek the benefit of some social, constructional, or dimensional change, NOT society generally. Everybody wants to socialize the costs and concentrate the benefits of government intrusion so that they benefit and largely avoid the costs. This simply maintains the constant push to the slop trough, and explains, in part, why the nation is 20 trillion dollars in the hole.

  5. Hey 2 psychs is never enough, since it is statistically unlikely that three will ever agree on anything! New study admits this pseudo science is about as scientifically valid as astrology ... done by via fortune cookie ....John Ioannidis, professor of health research and policy at Stanford University, said the study was impressive and that its results had been eagerly awaited by the scientific community. “Sadly, the picture it paints - a 64% failure rate even among papers published in the best journals in the field - is not very nice about the current status of psychological science in general, and for fields like social psychology it is just devastating,” he said. http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/aug/27/study-delivers-bleak-verdict-on-validity-of-psychology-experiment-results
