Court of Appeals of Indiana
Ji J. Lian v. Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County (mem. dec.)
22A-OV-2758
Ordinance violation. Affirms the orders requiring Ji Jing Lian to remedy the various health code violations on the interior and exterior portions of her property by a certain date and, in the event she did not comply, ordering the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County and/or its contractors to vacate the premises and clean up the exterior, with a resulting lien for the costs incurred. Finds Lian did not raise her Fourth Amendment argument in the Marion Superior Court, so she cannot pursue it on appeal.

Andrew L. Himes v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
22A-CR-3011
Criminal. Affirms Andrew L. Himes’ conviction of Level 3 felony rape and his 36-year sentence.

23A-JV-497
