Supreme Court grants more time to e-file some abstracts of judgment

Courts will have until the end of this year to file abstracts of judgment of felony convictions for people not sentenced to the Department of Correction, according to an order issued June 28 by the Indiana Supreme Court.

The court’s order revises its May 12 amendment to Criminal Rule 15.2 that took effect July 1. The amendment requires courts upon sentencing for a felony conviction to file an abstract of judgment in electronic format to the Division of State Court Administration.

The order grants more time to comply in certain situations.

“Recognizing that practical difficulties have arisen making it challenging for courts to comply by July 1, 2012, with the electronic Abstract of Judgment requirement for those defendants with felony convictions that are not being committed to the Indiana Department of Correction, the Court by this order directs trial courts to make all best efforts to comply as soon as practicable for those defendants, but no later than December 31, 2012,” the order says.

Courts still are required to comply with the amendment for felons committed to DOC.

The notice was forwarded to each Circuit court, a host of state agencies, councils representing prosecutors and defense attorneys, and the state’s law school libraries.

  1. Bob Stochel was opposing counsel to me in several federal cases (including a jury trial before Judge Tinder) here in SDIN. He is a very competent defense and trial lawyer who knows federal civil procedure and consumer law quite well. Bob gave us a run for our money when he appeared on a case.

  2. Awesome, Brian! Very proud of you and proud to have you as a partner!

  3. Oh, the name calling was not name calling, it was merely social commentary making this point, which is on the minds of many, as an aside to the article's focus: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100111082327AAmlmMa Or, if you prefer a local angle, I give you exhibit A in that analysis of viva la difference: http://fox59.com/2015/03/16/moed-appears-on-house-floor-says-hes-not-resigning/

  4. Too many attorneys take their position as a license to intimidate and threaten non attorneys in person and by mail. Did find it ironic that a reader moved to comment twice on this article could not complete a paragraph without resorting to insulting name calling (rethuglican) as a substitute for reasoned discussion. Some people will never get the point this action should have made.

  5. People have heard of Magna Carta, and not the Provisions of Oxford & Westminster. Not that anybody really cares. Today, it might be considered ethnic or racial bias to talk about the "Anglo Saxon common law." I don't even see the word English in the blurb above. Anyhow speaking of Edward I-- he was famously intolerant of diversity himself viz the Edict of Expulsion 1290. So all he did too like making parliament a permanent institution-- that all must be discredited. 100 years from now such commemorations will be in the dustbin of history.
