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.

Indiana Court of Appeals

Jeremy K. Warriner v. DC Marshall Jeep a/k/a DC Marshall, Inc.
49A02-1106-CT-489
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. Holds a manufacturer’s discharge in bankruptcy does not prevent a trial court from holding jurisdiction over that manufacturer. Judge Bailey concurs in part and concurs in result in part.

Gersh Zavodnik v. Katrin Gehrt and Imperator Bulldogs Kennel, et al. (NFP)
49A02-1105-CT-393
Civil. Affirms dismissal of 24 cases, but reverses with respect to three cases filed by Zavodnik against various people and businesses.

State of Indiana v. Mershaun Scott (NFP)
36A04-1108-CR-419
Criminal. Affirms grant of Scott’s motion to suppress.
