The Indiana Supreme Court took a post-conviction case Aug. 13 and sent it back to the Court of Appeals for consideration.
In April, the Court of Appeals dismissed Alex Fernando Carrillo’s appeal with prejudice. The Supreme Court took the case and, on the same day, ordered the COA judges to address the merits of Carrillo’s case. The docket notes that the appeal was dismissed before briefs were filed, so Carrillo has until Sept. 21 to file his brief, unless otherwise ordered.
The justices also denied seven cases last week, including Barbara (Rosario) Bessolo v. William I. Rosario, 29A02-1108-DR-789, in which the COA affirmed the finding that Barbara Bessolo was in contempt for not dismissing a protective order against her ex-husband as required by their dissolution decree.
