Ind. Courts - Be prepared to move fast if transfer is granted
Monday morning I looked at the Supreme and Appellate Court online calenders and made up the Monday ILB entry, "Upcoming oral arguments this week and next."
It was only last week that I decided to post a two-week calendar, thinking to give readers more lead time.
On Monday morning, the Supreme Court calendar listed no oral arguments for next week -- the week of March 9th.
This morning a reader dropped me a note: "I just noticed the February 19 transfer grants are set for oral argument on March 10. Is it just me or does nineteen days seem like a short time period to prepare for an oral argument before the Indiana Supreme Court?"
Actually, it is more like 11 days.
As indicated in this Feb. 19th ILB entry, Tommy D. Alvey v. State of Indiana, and Brennen Baker and Moisture Management v. Tremco Inc. and Rick Gibson, were granted transfer Feb. 19th.
A check of the docket shows the Brennen Baker parties were notified on Feb. 27 of the oral argument to take place on March 10th, the Alvey parties were also notified Feb. 27th.
Hence, be prepared to move fast if transfer is granted.
