Ind. Decisions - Court grants transfer in two cases

The formal transfer list will follow later today, but the ILB has received notice of two cases having been granted transfer:

Christopher Brown, D.D.S, Inc. v. Decatur County Memorial Hospital , issued by the COA on August 9th, raised one question on appeal: Whether prejudgment interest is available for belated payments to health care providers for services rendered under the Worker’s Compensation Act.

In Alan Jones v. State, issued by the COA on Sept. 21st, the COA ruled:

Given the potential for very serious probation violations, we find that trial courts should have discretion to consider assigning sexually violent predator status when considering probation violations and determining the sentence to be imposed for such violations. We conclude that the plain language of the statute here does not limit the consideration to the initial sentencing hearing, and Jones’s arguments to the contrary must fail.
