Supreme Court justices reject 12 cases

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Supreme Court added no cases to its docket last week, denying or dismissing transfer in a dozen cases.

The Supreme Court transfer list released Monday for the week ending July 6 includes two cases in which transfer was dismissed and 10 transfer denials. Transfer was dismissed on two criminal appeals – Richard Mitchell v. State of Indiana, 43A03-1202-CR-55, and Robert Murphy v. State of Indiana, 18A02-1202-CR-142.

The justices also rejected two appeals involving lawsuits against cities. Justices declined to review Jack Messer v. City of New Albany 22A05-1104-MI-179, in which a policeman sued following his suspension after he made comments deemed racist during a roll call. His discipline was upheld by a divided Indiana Court of Appeals panel.

Also denied review was Ayanna Wright; American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees, Council 62, Local 4009, AFL-CIO v. City of Gary, Indiana, 45A04-1107-PL-362. In that case, a divided Court of Appeals reversed a trial court that vacated a union arbitrator’s finding for an employee who had been terminated.
