Ind. Decisions - Trumping legislative prayer case, another Indiana case has been awaiting an opinion from the 7th Circuit for more than two years

Referencing the ILB entry yesterday headed "How long has it been since the 7th Circuit heard oral arguments in the legislative prayer case?", a reader writes to point out:

While the legislative prayer case has been post-Oral Argument for more than a year, the appeal in the Indianapolis adult business case has been pending for more than TWO YEARS since oral argument.
Sure enough:
05-1926 - Annex Books v. City of Indianapolis
Oral argument 09/08/2005 - Case heard and taken under advisement by panel: Chief Judge Joel M. Flaum, Circuit Judge Frank H. Easterbrook, Circuit Judge Ilana D. Rovner.

05-4604 - Hinrichs, Anthony v. Bosma, Brian
Oral argument 09/07/2006 - Case heard and taken under advisement by panel: Circuit Judge Kenneth F. Ripple, Circuit Judge Michael S. Kanne, Circuit Judge Diane P. Wood.

A check of past ILB Annex Books entries shows entries from 8/4/04 ("Federal court upholds Indianapolis' ordinance re adult businesses"), 8/15/04 (a copy of Judge Barker's opinion), and 10/19/04 ("Cities battle adult stores in courts").

Oddly, the ILB does not appear to have covered the appeal to the 7th Circuit, but will surely cover the ruling, whenever it is issued.
