The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Wednesday:
United States of America v. Abel Flores-Lopez
10-3803
U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, Judge William T. Lawrence.
Criminal. Affirms search of Flores-Lopez’s cell phone to obtain the phone’s number. Looking in a cell phone for just the cell phone’s number does not exceed what decisions like Robinson, dealing with the search of a container found on an arrested person, and Concepcion, which held a minimally invasive search may be lawful without a warrant, allow.

Thursday’s opinions
7th Circuit Court of Appeals had posted no Indiana opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Supreme Court and Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Civil tort.  Affirms summary judgment for the dealership in Warriner’s suit alleging the dealership is strictly liable for the injuries he sustained in a car accident under the Indiana Products Liability Act and liable for negligent marketing of an unsafe product.

49A02-1105-CT-393

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
