Indiana Supreme Court

Desmond Davidson v. State of Indiana
49S02-1001-CR-41
Criminal. Affirms trial court and agrees with Court of Appeals. Finds that upon the review of sentence appropriateness under Appellate Rule 7, appellate courts may consider all aspects of the penal consequences imposed by the trial judge in sentencing the defendant. Disapproves of the contrary views expressed in Eaton, 825 N.E.2d at 1290–91; Pagan, 809 N.E.2d at 926; and Cox, 792 N.E.2d at 904.

Indiana Family and Social Services Administration v. Alice V. Meyer, et al.
69S01-0905-CV-233
Civil. Unanimously holds the trial court has no authority to grant a motion for an extension of time to file the record if the motion is filed after the time for filing the record and any previous extensions have expired. Supreme Court is divided as to whether a case may go forward where a full record of proceedings has not been filed. The Court of Appeals decision therefore remains in place and the trial court‘s order remanding this case to FSSA is affirmed.

Susan Kozlowski v. Lake County Plan Commission, Dordija Dordieski, Lana Dordieski, Jon Bruskoski, and Liberty Bruskoski

  2. A traditional parade of attorneys? Really Evansville? Y'all need to get out more. When is the traditional parade of notaries? Nurses? Sanitation workers? Pole dancers? I gotta wonder, do throngs of admiring citizens gather to laud these marching servants of the constitution? "Show us your billing records!!!" Hoping some video gets posted. Ours is not a narcissistic profession by any chance, is it? Nah .....

  3. My previous comment not an aside at court. I agree with smith. Good call. Just thought posting here a bit on the if it bleeds it leads side. Most attorneys need to think of last lines of story above.

  5. He must be a Rethuglican, for if from the other side of the aisle such acts would be merely personal and thus not something that attaches to his professional life. AND ... gotta love this ... oh, and on top of talking dirty on the phone, he also, as an aside, guess we should mention, might be important, not sure, but .... "In addition to these allegations, Keaton was accused of failing to file an appeal after he collected advance payment from a client seeking to challenge a ruling that the client repay benefits because of unreported income." rimshot
