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

Indiana Court of Appeals
Juan M. Garrett v. State of Indiana
49A04-1107-PC-410
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief. Because Garrett’s double jeopardy claims are without merit, he was not prejudiced by his trial and direct appeal attorneys’ failure to raise these claims.

Janet Stewart v. Richmond Community Schools
93A02-1108-EX-793
Agency appeal. Affirms final judgment of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana affirming a single hearing member’s determination of permanent partial impairment. The board’s determination that Stewart was not permanently and totally disabled was a final award subject to appellate review. She didn’t seek appellate review, so she waived any claim of error related to the board’s decision.

Teresa Yates v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A02-1108-CR-823
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

C. Richard Marshall v. Kenneth W. Heider (NFP)
93A02-1106-EX-567
Agency appeal. Reverses order of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana awarding $6,000 in attorney fees to Heider. Remands to the board with instructions.

Stuart Warren Lacy v. State of Indiana (NFP)
48A02-1107-CR-686
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class B felony robbery.

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

  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.
