Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Kevin L. Hampton v. State of Indiana
84A04-1002-PC-122
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief. There was no error in omitting the requested sentence and appellate counsel did not fail to provide effective assistance.

State of Indiana v. J.S.
49A02-1004-JV-567
Juvenile. Affirms dismissal of delinquency petition against J.S. after he was found incompetent to stand trial. Given the extensive expert reports finding J.S. incompetent, the juvenile court did not abuse its discretion in finding him incompetent to stand trial. The charges should not remain pending to see if he regains competency before he is 18 and the record reveals his family is aware of his problems and trying to help him.

Vaughn A. Reeves, Jr. v. State of Indiana
77A04-1005-CR-292
Criminal. Affirms in part denial of Reeves’ motion to dismiss 10 counts of Class C felony aiding, inducing, or causing securities fraud. Because a portion of the 10 charging informations, on their face, allege a time period outside the statute of limitations and do not allege facts sufficient to constitute an exception to the statute, the trial court should have granted, in part, Reeves’ motion to dismiss as to these dates that fell outside the statute of limitation. Remands for consideration, as set forth in Indiana Code Section 35-34-1-4(d), of whether the trial court will discharge the defendant as to specific dates or deny the discharge upon determining that the prosecutor would be entitled to cure the information by amendment.

Blake Parkins v. State of Indiana (NFP)
29A02-1002-CR-345
Criminal. Affirms conviction of criminal recklessness with the use of a motor vehicle as a Class A misdemeanor.

Christina Smith v. State of Indiana (NFP)
15A01-1003-CR-153
Criminal. Revises sentence following Smith’s guilty plea to Class C felony reckless homicide and remands for trial court to impose sentence of four years with two years suspended.

Jamarr Da-Juan Williams v. State of Indiana (NFP)
45A03-1001-CR-39
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class A felony voluntary manslaughter, Class C felony battery, and Class C felony attempted battery.

Jane Marie Burkart v. State of Indiana (NFP)
46A03-0908-CR-385
Criminal. Affirms convictions of and sentence for five counts of Class B misdemeanor abandonment or neglect of vertebrate animals.

Kenneth W. Ellis v. State of Indiana (NFP)
25A03-1007-CR-407
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to dealing in cocaine as a Class B felony.

Antonio Simeone, et al. v. Schreiber Lumber, Inc., et al. (NFP)
49A02-1002-CP-177
Civil plenary. Affirms judgment in favor of Dave Beck on negligence and constructive fraud claims, partial summary judgment for Schreiber Lumber, Bova’s counterclaim for breach of contract, and that the evidence supports the trial court judgment.

Jason Montgomery v. State of Indiana (NFP)
17A04-1002-CR-95
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class B felony burglary.

Michael J. Kempf v. State of Indiana (NFP)
65A01-1003-CR-134
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class D felony operating a vehicle while an habitual traffic offender.

Raymond Hannah v. State of Indiana (NFP)
48A04-1004-CR-225
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class C felony nonsupport of a dependent child.

Christopher Martin v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A04-1003-CR-152
Criminal. Affirms sentence following conviction of Class C felony reckless homicide.

Justin Stanback v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A05-1004-CR-251
Criminal. Reverses denial of Stanback’s request to file a belated notice of appeal and remands for further proceedings.

Cory R. Dowden v. State of Indiana (NFP)
34A02-1004-CR-562

  1. I am compelled to announce that I am not posting under any Smith monikers here. That said, the post below does have a certain ring to it that sounds familiar to me: http://www.catholicnewworld.com/cnwonline/2014/0907/cardinal.aspx

  2. As an adoptive parent, I have to say this situation was as shameful as it gets. While the state government opens its wallet to the Simons and their friends, it denied payments to the most vulnerable in our state. Thanks Mitch!

  3. We as lawyers who have given up the range of First amendment freedom that other people possess, so that we can have a license to practice in the courts of the state and make gobs of money, that we agree to combat the hateful and bigoted discrimination enshrined in the law by democratic majorities, that Law Lord Posner has graciously explained for us....... We must now unhesitatingly condemn the sincerely held religious beliefs of religiously observant Catholics, Muslims, Christians, and Jewish persons alike who yet adhere to Scriptural exhortations concerning sodomites and catamites..... No tolerance will be extended to intolerance, and we must hate the haters most zealously! And in our public explanations of this constitutional garbledygook, when doing the balancing act, we must remember that the state always pushes its finger down on the individualism side of the scale at every turn and at every juncture no matter what the cost to society.....to elevate the values of a minority over the values of the majority is now the defining feature of American "Democracy..." we must remember our role in tricking Americans to think that this is desirable in spite of their own democratically expressed values being trashed. As a secular republic the United States might as well be officially atheist, religious people are now all bigots and will soon be treated with the same contempt that kluckers were in recent times..... The most important thing is that any source of moral authority besides the state be absolutely crushed.

  4. In my recent article in Indiana Lawyer, I noted that grass roots marketing -- reaching out and touching people -- is still one of the best forms of advertising today. It's often forgotten in the midst of all of today's "newer wave" marketing techniques. Shaking hands and kissing babies is what politicians have done for year and it still works. These are perfect examples of building goodwill. Kudos to these firms. Make "grass roots" an essential part of your marketing plan. Jon Quick QPRmarketing.com

  5. Hi, Who can I speak to regarding advertising today? Thanks, Gary
