Indiana Court of Appeals
Kevin Davis v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A felony robbery resulting in serious bodily injury. L.H.’s statements to police identifying Davis as participating in the beating and robbery were properly admitted, the trial court did not err when it determined two witnesses had made themselves unavailable and therefore allowed their depositions to be admitted into evidence at trial, and there is sufficient evidence supporting the conviction.
Craig Alvey v. State of Indiana
Miscellaneous. Affirms petition for rehearing of the denial of Alvey’s petition to expunge records of his conviction of Class A misdemeanor possession of cocaine. Finds that Alvey does not have to wait three years to file a new petition to expunge his Class A misdemeanor conviction under the new, more liberal standards of I.C. 35-38-8-2 (2014). Affirms in all other respects.
Cherokee Air Products, Inc., Cherokee Family Limited Partnership, Tippmann Industrial Products, Inc., Dennis Tippmann, Sr. Family Partnership, LLP, and Tippmann Farms, LLC v. Bruce E. Buchan
Civil plenary. Affirms on interlocutory appeal the order granting partial summary judgment in favor of Buchan in an action alleging breach of his employment contract and seeking damages. There are no genuine issues of material fact precluding the entry of partial summary judgment on the issue of his entitlement to retire.
Arthur Gutierrez, Jr. v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A felony child molesting.
In the Matter of J.K., A Child in Need of Services, M.K., Father v. Marion County Department of Child Services and Child Advocates, Inc. (NFP)
