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. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
