Indiana Court of Appeals
Robert Campbell v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms on interlocutory appeal the order granting the state’s motion to withdraw from guilty plea. By refusing to testify at his co-defendant’s trial, Campbell failed to tender the consideration specifically contemplated in the plea agreement. Thus, it would deprive the state of its end of the bargain to sentence Campbell in accordance with a contract that he did not fully satisfy.

Certain Martinsville Annexation Territory Landowners v. City of Martinsville
Miscellaneous. Dismisses the remonstrators’ appeal of the order denying their remonstrance, affirming the city’s annexation ordinance and approving the annexation of certain land surrounding the city. Finds the remonstrators’ appeal is moot as they did not request a stay of the annexation at any time prior to the appeal. Judge Baker concurs with separate opinion.
