Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending July 30, 2010
Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending July 30, 2010. It is two pages (and 35 cases) long.
Three transfers were granted last week, and there was one dismissal.
The dismissal was Saul I. Ruman, et al. v. Denise Benjamin, a NFP opinion from Dec. 17, 2009.
Here are the three transfers:
- The City of Indianapolis, et al. v. Christine Armour, et al., a Dec. 18, 2009 opinion, is the subject of a lengthy Dec. 30, 2009 ILB entry, including this from WTHR 13:
Residents of a northwest side neighborhood have found it can pay to take on city hall.
The Indiana Court of Appeals has ordered the city to issue refunds of $8,968 to 30 households in the Northern Estates subdivision.
It stems from a class action lawsuit filed more than two years ago over sewer assessments. In 2004 the city assessed property owners $9,278 apiece to go from septic tanks to city sewers. The 30 families paid the assessment up front, while several neighbors chose the installment plan. They paid $309 apiece before the city adopted a new policy on assessments, abandoning the so-called Barrett Law in favor of a flat fee of $2,500 a piece for future hook-ups.
- Matthew A. Baugh v. State of Indiana - a 2-1, 5/2/10 COA opinion - ILB summary here. Judge Darden's dissent concludes in part:
How could a constitutionally competent attorney allow his client to suffer the consequences that befell Baugh without advising him of the statutorily required hearing, at which he could subject the experts' conclusions to the crucible of cross-examination?
- David Hopper v. State of Indiana - a 4/28/10 COA opinion (ILB Summary here):
David Hopper appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief (“PCR petition”), which challenged his conviction for Class A misdemeanor operating while intoxicated (“OWI”). We reverse and remand. The sole issue is whether the post-conviction court properly concluded that Hopper knowingly and intelligently waived his right to counsel before pleading guilty to the OWI charge.
