The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals released no Indiana opinions before IL deadline. State courts are closed Tuesday for Election Day.
The following opinions were issued after IL deadline Monday:
Indiana Supreme Court
State of Indiana v. Elvis Holtsclaw
Criminal. Reverses dismissal of state’s notice of appeal and remands to the Court of Appeals for consideration of its merits, holding that the appeal is timely under Appellate Rule 9.
Elmer J. Bailey v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Reverses Court of Appeals and affirms trial court conviction of two counts of Class D felony domestic battery and two-year sentence, holding that physical pain is sufficient to prove the statutory element of bodily injury. The court rejected the COA’s holding that pain “must be sufficient to rise to a level of ‘impairment of physical condition’” to justify the conviction.
Indiana Tax Court
Shelbyville MHPI, LLC v. Anne Thurston, in her official capacity as Assessor, Shelby County
Tax. Affirms Indiana Board’s decision to uphold Shelby County assessor’s assessment of property owned by Shelbyville MHPI, LLC. The court found MHPI was incorrect when it assumed its assessment and property tax liability would remain relatively constant.
Millennium Real Estate Investment, LLC v. Assessor, Benton County, Indiana
Tax. Affirms Indiana Board of Tax Review’s decision to uphold real property assessments of Millennium Real Estate Investment, LLC. The court rejected Millennium’s argument that the IBTR abused its discretion in finding the assessor’s appraisal more persuasive.
