7th Circuit Court of Appeals had posted no Indiana opinions at IL deadline.
Indiana Court of Appeals
Juan M. Garrett v. State of Indiana
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief. Because Garrett’s double jeopardy claims are without merit, he was not prejudiced by his trial and direct appeal attorneys’ failure to raise these claims.
Janet Stewart v. Richmond Community Schools
Agency appeal. Affirms final judgment of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana affirming a single hearing member’s determination of permanent partial impairment. The board’s determination that Stewart was not permanently and totally disabled was a final award subject to appellate review. She didn’t seek appellate review, so she waived any claim of error related to the board’s decision.
Teresa Yates v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
C. Richard Marshall v. Kenneth W. Heider (NFP)
Agency appeal. Reverses order of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana awarding $6,000 in attorney fees to Heider. Remands to the board with instructions.
Stuart Warren Lacy v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class B felony robbery.
Indiana Supreme Court and Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.
