Technical glitch, now fixed, hits revised opinions

Attorneys who logged on this morning to the Indiana Judiciary Web site to read and print opinions were met with a challenge: you could view, but couldn't print.

The first Court of Appeals opinions of the New Year were password protected and locked so that people accessing the online opinions were unable to print them.

That was an internal, unintended glitch and the problem's been resolved, according to Supreme Court Administrator and Appellate Clerk Kevin Smith.

The opinions posted earlier this morning disappeared temporarily and reappeared around 10:30 a.m. and allowed users to print them.

That glitch came as a result of a procedure started within the appellate clerk's office - a timestamp graphic on each opinion showing date and time it was posted.

In early December, the appellate clerk's office made the decision to not provide printed courtesy copies of opinions in an effort to save paper and costs. The Internet is now the main method for viewing and obtaining appellate opinions. Opinions can be viewed at http://www.in.gov/judiciary/opinions, as well as on Indiana Lawyer's Web site and via Indiana Lawyer Daily.

Smith said that move to eliminate paper complicated the process with WestLaw and LexisNexis, which had previously required a final, stamped printed copy of each opinion. As a result, Smith asked the information technology department to create a graphic to include so that an e-version could be sent.

  1. Thanks for this article. We live in Evansville, IN and are aware of how bad the child abuse is here. Can you please send us the statistics for here in Vanderburgh, County. Our web site is: www.ritualabusefree.org Thanks again

  2. This ruling has no application to Indiana. The tail end of the article is misleading where it states criminal penalties await those who refuse a test. This is false. An administrative license suspension is what awaits you. No more, no less.

  3. Yellow journalism much??? "The outcome underscores that the direction of U.S. immigration policy will be determined in large part by this fall's presidential election, a campaign in which immigration already has played an outsized role." OUTSIZED? by whose standards? Also this: "In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help immigrants a friendlier reception." Ah, also, did you forget an adjective at the *** marks ahead by any chance? Thinking of one that rhymes with bald eagle? " In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help *** immigrants a friendlier reception."

  4. Definition of furnish. : to provide (a room or building) with furniture. : to supply or give (something) to someone or something. : to supply or give to (someone) something that is needed or wanted. Judge Kincaid: if furnish means provide, and the constitution says the provider in a uni is the township, how on earth are they seperated??

  5. I never filed a law suite. I had no money for a lawyer. In 2010 I presented for MRI/with contrast. The technician stuck my left arm three times with needle to inject dye. I was w/out O2 for two minutes, not breathing, no ambulance was called. I suffered an Embolism ,Myocardia infarction. Permanent memory loss, heart damage. After the event, I could not remember what I did five seconds earlier. I had no-one to help me. I lost my dental hygiene career, been homeless, etc.
