Several oral arguments scheduled to be heard by both the Indiana Supreme Court and the Indiana Court of Appeals have been canceled as of Wednesday.

The cancelations come after the high court announced Monday that oral arguments would continue, subject to change, but would be limited to only attorneys and parties in the respective cases.

An Indiana Supreme Court argument in Brandon Battering v. State of Indiana, 20S-CR-00031, had originally set to be heard at 9:45 a.m. Thursday, but the Office of the Attorney General moved to either reschedule the case or decide it without argument “in light of this uncertainty and the dangers t0 personal and public health at the moment” stemming from COVID-19.

The justices partially granted the motion, saying it anticipates rescheduling the case “in due course.”

However, the justices are still scheduled to hear Kenyon Tyus, Jr., et al. v. Indianapolis Power & Light Co., et al., 18A-CT-00828, at 9 a.m. Thursday. 

Several Indiana Court of Appeals cases up for oral argument through April 15 were also canceled.

Last week, the Court of Appeals directed its employees to begin working from home and canceled a planned Monday oral argument at a Lake County high school.
