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. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
