Ind. Decisions - Three cases granted transfer today, including whether myspace.com postings are protected political speech

Three cases granted transfer today by the Supreme Court

Adkins v. State - The ILB summary to the COA opinion reads: "Henry J. Adkins appeals his conviction for pointing a firearm as a class D felony. Adkins raises two issues, which we restate as: I. Whether the trial court abused its discretion when it did not allow Adkins’s wife to testify as a witness; and II. Whether the trial court erred when it instructed the jury regarding the elements of the offense. We affirm."

Baxendale v. Raich - The very brief ILB summary to the COA opinion reads: "Valerie Baxendale appeals the denial of her request to relocate to Minneapolis that resulted in the modification of the custody of her eleven-year-old son, A.R., to her ex-husband, Samuel Raich, III. We reverse."

A.B. v. State - The ILB summary to the COA opinion sets out the issue: "Whether the message authored by A.B. and posted on a myspace.com website is protected political speech." See also this ILB entry from April 10, 2007, this one from July 17, 2007, and this one from Sept. 2, 2007.
