Supreme Court denies 17 cases for transfer

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Last week, the Indiana Supreme Court only took one case on transfer, which it ruled on Dec. 19. The justices declined to take 17 other cases.

In an opinion released the day the justices took the case, the high court reinstated John Kimbrough’s 80-year sentence for molesting his former girlfriend’s two young daughters in John Kimbrough, III v. State of Indiana, 45S04-1212-CR-687.

The justices declined to take Town of Zionsville, Indiana and Zionsville Plan Commission v. Hamilton County Airport Authority, 49A05-1107-PL-374, in which the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the town of Zionsville in a zoning dispute with the Hamilton County Airport Authority. Justice Steven David did not participate in the decision on this matter.

The justices were divided on whether to take the appeal of a man convicted of raping a fellow college student. Chief Justice Brent Dickson and Justice Loretta Rush voted to grant transfer to Jason Michael Palilonis v. State of Indiana, 42A05-1104-CR-197. Jason Michael Palilonis was convicted of Class B felony rape of student B.S. while both were at Vincennes University. The Court of Appeals affirmed the conviction.

A complete list of the petitions for transfer can be found on the court’s website.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
