Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Ronald D. Dean v. Kristine M. Weaver
Civil. Affirms order denying Dean's motion seeking collection of his expert-witness fees from Weaver. The Indiana trial court that had acquired restrictive jurisdiction pursuant to Indiana Trial Rule 28(E) to conduct ancillary discovery proceedings lacks the jurisdiction to reopen the cause and hear Dean’s motion on the payment of his fees.

C.E.K., II v. State of Indiana
Juvenile. Affirms order C.E.K. II register as a sex offender. Wallace didn't hold that the Sex Offender Registration Act is a wholly punitive measure that would violate the juvenile code's rehabilitative policies. C.E.K.'s argument that the juvenile court lacks subject matter jurisdiction fails.

Steve Pigg v. State of Indiana
Civil. Affirms denial of Pigg's motion for delivery of money from his former attorney. Pigg has waived his claim of injury due to lack of a hearing by failing to request a hearing. But, waiver notwithstanding, Pigg failed to demonstrate any abuse of discretion by the trial court in holding a trial by affidavit. Concludes from the evidence that attorney Kiefer has proven that no unearned portions of the retainer paid for Pigg's representation remained upon Kiefer's termination of that representation.

Diosha L. Lamb v. State of Indiana (NFP)

Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor invasion of privacy.

Vickie A. Chaffins v. State of Indiana (NFP)

Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class A felony dealing methamphetamine.

Robert D. Storey v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief.

Christopher Roberts v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class D felony theft, Class C felony burglary, and Class D felony possession of stolen property.

Rick Glascoe v. State of Indiana (NFP)

Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor battery.

S.H. v. Review Board of the Indiana Dept. of Workforce Development and D.O. McComb & Sons, Inc. (NFP)
Civil. Affirms denial of unemployment benefits.
