The following are not-for-publication opinions released by IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Betty J. Angel v. Kent H. Powelson and Marjorie A. Powelson
82A04-1205-PL-292
Civil plenary. Affirms order granting part of the Powelsons’ summary judgment motion on Angel’s claims of reformation of a deed and adverse possession. The undisputed evidence shows that both Angel and the Powelsons were granted an easement to use the roadway and both used it for ingress and egress purposes. The evidence also supports Angel’s claim for reformation of a deed is barred by laches.

Shiloh Jones v. State of Indiana
49A04-1202-CR-74
Criminal. Vacates the convictions and sentences for Class A misdemeanors battery and domestic battery due to double jeopardy and affirms conviction and sentence for Class D felony domestic battery. Jones’ conviction for criminal confinement did not violate the prohibition against double jeopardy. The amended sentence imposed by the judge and comments by the prosecutor did not constitute fundamental error.

Aaron Shelton v. State of Indiana (NFP)
02A05-1112-CR-665
Criminal. Affirms convictions of one count of possession of methamphetamine and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, all Class D felonies.

49A02-1112-MF-1142
Mortgage foreclosure. Affirms order denying Wilder’s and Taylor’s motion for summary judgment and the grant of summary judgment in favor of the bank. Remands with instructions that the trial court recalculate the amount to award to the bank consistent with this opinion. Chief Judge Margret Robb dissents.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
