Indiana Court of Appeals
Allstate Insurance Company v. Timothy Clancy, et al.
Civil. Reverses trial court’s order granting a motion to compel the production of documents. In its interlocutory appeal, Allstate Insurance Company raised the following issue: whether the trial court abused its discretion by compelling production of documents subject to the attorney-client privilege on the ground that Allstate has implicitly raised an advice of counsel defense, thereby waiving the attorney-client privilege.
Nathan Brock v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms Nathan Brock’s conviction of operating a motor vehicle after forfeiture of license for life, a Class C felony. Brock argued his convictions violated double jeopardy because the trial court granted the state’s request for a mistrial at the close of the first trial in the absence of a manifest necessity to do so, and then permitted the state to retry Brock, resulting in his conviction. Indiana Court of Appeals found the mistrial and subsequent retrial did not violate double jeopardy.
