Indiana Court of Appeals

Michael Carpenter v. State of Indiana
85A05-1202-CR-57
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class B felony conspiracy to commit dealing in methamphetamine. The police officers did not violate Carpenter’s Fourth Amendment rights when they entered the house’s curtilage pursuant to an arrest warrant and looked into the bathroom window. The officers also did not violate his rights under the Indiana Constitution.

Columbus Regional Hospital v. Clyde Amburgey, Individually and as Executor of the Estate of Moreen Amburgey
03A01-1110-CT-450
Civil tort. Affirms denial of the hospital’s request for partial summary judgment as it argued that the expiration of the statute of limitations with respect to two doctors foreclosed the suit brought by Amburgey. Genuine issues of material fact exist regarding the claim of apparent agency.

L.H. Controls, Inc. v. Custom Conveyor, Inc.
16A05-1111-PL-606
Civil plenary. Reverses award of lost profit damages to CCI in the amount of $1,144,470 for breach of contract by L.H., the award of $133,328.53 in attorney fees to CCI, award of damages of $82,184.10 for CCI’s chargebacks, and the $5,259.38 set-off for L.H. the trial court allowed against the $82,184.10. Affirms the awards of $7,077 and $928.86 in costs related to CCI’s removal of the mechanic’s lien against Honda plant’s property. Together with the damages L.H. does not challenge on appeal, this will result in a total award to CCI of $112,864.46. Remands for trial court to make necessary corrections to the judgment.

Duane Turner v. State of Indiana
18A05-1112-PC-697
Post conviction. Affirms denial of Turner’s motion for summary disposition and grant of the state’s motion for summary judgment on the constitutionality of Turner’s life sentence without parole. Affirms denial of relief based on ineffective assistance of trial counsel. Concludes Turner met his burden to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that his appellate counsel was ineffective by failing to challenge his Class A felony attempted robbery resulting in serious bodily injury conviction. Remands with instructions to reduce that to a Class B felony robbery conviction.

Lavelle Malone v. Keith Butts and Bruce Lemmon
48A02-1203-MI-228
Miscellaneous. Affirms order granting a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim filed by Butts and Lemon regarding Malone’s action for mandate. The Department of Correction complied with the requirements of I.C. 11-11-3-9 when it administratively imposed restrictions on Malone’s visits.

Kenneth Kelly v. State of Indiana (NFP)
30A01-1112-PC-612

  2. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  3. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  4. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  5. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.
