Ind. Decisions - Two transfers granted Aug. 19th
Although we still have not seen the transfer list for the week ending Aug. 14, the ILB has just received information on some new transfers, granted Aug. 19, which presumably will be included on the Clerk's Transfer List to be dated Aug. 21st.
- Traveler Indemnity Co v. Jarrells -- 29A02-0807-CV-669. This was a 2-1, three-opinion worker's compensation opinion issued May 21. From the majority opinion: "Travelers argues that the trial court erred in denying its motion for summary judgment because the statutory lien entitled it to reimbursement of worker's compensation payments made on behalf of Jarrells. We agree." ILB summary here - 3rd case.
- Walker Whatley v. State -- 49A02-0809-CR-808. Whatley was convicted of possession of cocaine in a quantity in excess of three grams within one- thousand feet of a “youth program center.” In this opinion, also dated May 21st, the Court concludes:
In light of the precedent herein set forth and after careful consideration and deliberation, we hold that the Robinson Community Church was and remains a church and is not converted into a youth program center by reason of its faith-based activities for young people. Bi-weekly Girl Scout troop meetings and mentoring of children by adult members of the congregation were accessory or incidental to the existence and identity as a church. The church was not a youth program center. It remained a church notwithstanding the incidental activities not solely religious in nature.See ILB summary here, 5th case.
