Indiana Supreme Court
City of Marion v. London Witte Group, LLC, Chad Seybold, Estate of Michael Y. An, Global Investment Consulting, Inc., and World Enterprise Group, Inc.
20S-MI-00567
Miscellaneous. Affirms and reverses in part the grant of summary judgment to London Witte Group in a dispute with the city of Marion. After applying the adverse domination doctrine, finds summary judgment was inappropriate for all of the city of Marion’s claims because there are genuine issues of material fact as to whether former Mayor Wayne Seybold adversely dominated the city, and whether London Witte Group helped him do so. Remands for further proceedings.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Jeremy M. Jones v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
20A-CR-2292
Criminal. Affirms and reverses in part Jeremy M. Jones’ convictions for four counts of dealing in a narcotic drug, three as Level 5 felonies and one as a Level 4 felony, and his aggregate 30-year sentence. Finds the Jennings Circuit Court did not abuse its discretion in denying Jones’ request for a continuance. Also finds the incredible dubiosity rule is inapplicable and that sufficient evidence was presented to support Jones’s convictions. Finally, finds Johnson’s sentence on each of these convictions must run concurrently. Remands for the entry of a revised sentencing order and abstract of judgment indicating that the sentences on counts 1 through 4 will run concurrently.

Brendan Johnathan Weaver v. State of Indiana
21A-CR-116
Criminal. Affirms Brendan Weaver’s 20-year sentence for his convictions of Level 2 felony dealing in methamphetamine and Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. Finds his sentence is not inappropriate in light of the nature of the offense and the character of the offender.
