Ind. Decisions - Court grants transfer in two cases

The formal transfer list likely won't follow until next Monday, Sept. 29th, but the ILB has received advance notice of two cases granted transfer:

George Jackson v. State was granted transfer today, Sept. 23rd. Here is the ILB summary of the July 8th COA 2-1 opinion, re the validity of a search warrant.

Scottie R. Adams v. State was also transferred today, Sept. 23rd, according to the Clerk's docket. Here is the ILB summary of the July 25th COA opinion which held "Specifically, Adams argues that the trial court erred in instructing the jury on the offense of voluntary manslaughter when he was charged only with murder and that the trial court abused its discretion in denying his motion for a mistrial. Finding no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court."
