1:00 PM - State of Indiana v. American Family Voices, Inc. et al - This case involves the attempted enforcement of the Indiana Autodialer Law, see Indiana Code ch. 24-5-14, by the State of Indiana against the Appellees.

The State appealed the circuit court's order and sought immediate transfer of the appeal to the Supreme Court pursuant to Indiana Appellate Rule 56(A), which the Court granted. Attorneys for Appellant: Thomas M. Fisher, Julie A. Brubaker and Heather L. Hagan, Indianapolis, IN. Attorneys for Appellee, Jim Gonzalez: Edward O. DeLaney and Craig M. Blanchet, Indianapolis, IN.

This Thursday, June 19th:

11:00 AM - Michael Hill v. State - A jury found Hill not guilty of a Class A felony, attempted child molesting (that is, involving a child under fourteen years of age), see Ind. Code § 35-42-4-3, but found him guilty of a Class B felony of attempted sexual misconduct with a minor (that is, with a child at least fourteen years of age but less than sixteen years of age), see Ind. Code § 35-42-4-9. The Marion Superior Court entered a judgment of conviction for the Class B felony. The Court of Appeals reversed in an unpublished memorandum decision, Hill v. State, No. 49A02-0701-CR-110 (Ind. Ct. App. Oct. 23, 2007), vacated. [See ILB entry here.] The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case, thus vacating the opinion of the Court of Appeals, and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal. Attorney for Hill; Todd Woodmansee of Indianapolis, IN. Attorney for State; Joby Jerrells of Indianapolis, IN. [Where: Indiana Supreme Court Courtroom]
