Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Commitment of A.L.
49A02-1001-MH-76
Mental health. Affirms order of temporary commitment. Any error in the admission of evidence or consideration of Wishard’s argument as to A.L.’s dangerousness was not a blatant violation of fundamental fairness and didn’t cause substantial and apparent harm to her.

Steven D. Hyche v. State of Indiana
49A02-0911-CR-1154
Criminal. Vacates convictions of felony murder and dealing in a controlled substance. Because the record is devoid of any evidence that Hyche was acting in any capacity other than that of a purchaser of ecstasy, it’s insufficient to support a dealing conviction and therefore a felony murder conviction based on the dealing one.

Freudenberg-Nok General Partnership v. Allison Transmission, Inc. (NFP)
49A04-1003-PL-141
Civil plenary. Affirms preliminary injunction requiring Freudenberg-Nok to continue selling parts to Allison Transmission pursuant to the terms of their contracts.

Michael Deloney v. State of Indiana (NFP)
48A02-1003-CR-281
Criminal. Affirms revocation of probation and execution of a portion of Deloney’s previously suspended sentences.

Anna Galuoppo v. Richard Galuoppo (NFP)
08A02-1002-DR-199
Domestic relation. Affirms order denying Anna’s motion to correct error in the dissolution of her marriage.

Buffy L. Heckler v. Gary L. Heckler and Beverly J. Heckler (NFP)
32A05-1003-DR-217
Domestic relation. Affirms denial of Buffy Heckler’s motion for attorney’s fees and costs.

Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

  1. Thank you, John Smith, for pointing out a needed correction. The article has been revised.

  2. The "National institute for Justice" is an agency for the Dept of Justice. That is not the law firm you are talking about in this article. The "institute for justice" is a public interest law firm. http://ij.org/ thanks for interesting article however

  3. I would like to try to find a lawyer as soon possible I've had my money stolen off of my bank card driver pressed charges and I try to get the information they need it and a Social Security board is just give me a hold up a run around for no reason and now it think it might be too late cuz its been over a year I believe and I can't get the right information they need because they keep giving me the runaroundwhat should I do about that

  4. It is wonderful that Indiana DOC is making some truly admirable and positive changes. People with serious mental illness, intellectual disability or developmental disability will benefit from these changes. It will be much better if people can get some help and resources that promote their health and growth than if they suffer alone. If people experience positive growth or healing of their health issues, they may be less likely to do the things that caused them to come to prison in the first place. This will be of benefit for everyone. I am also so happy that Indiana DOC added correctional personnel and mental health staffing. These are tough issues to work with. There should be adequate staffing in prisons so correctional officers and other staff are able to do the kind of work they really want to do-helping people grow and change-rather than just trying to manage chaos. Correctional officers and other staff deserve this. It would be great to see increased mental health services and services for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in the community so that fewer people will have to receive help and support in prisons. Community services would like be less expensive, inherently less demeaning and just a whole lot better for everyone.

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