Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending July 6, 2012

Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending Friday, July 6, 2012. It is one page (and 12 cases) long.

No transfers were granted last week. Two petitions for transfer were dismissed, Richard Mitchell v. State of Indiana and Robert Murphy v. State of Indiana. Mitchell was a pro se attempt at an interlocutory appeal, which was denied by the COA. The Supreme Court: "THE TRANSFER PETITION IS PROCEDURALLY IMPROPER AND IT IS DISMISSED. PROCEEDINGS IN THIS APPELLATE CAUSE NUMBER ARE AT AN END."

Murphy's appellate docket begins with this from the COA:

APPELLANT'S MOTION IS DEFECTIVE - MOTION IS NOT DOUBLE-SPACED; AND MOTION DOES NOT INCLUDE A CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE. ALSO, APPELLANT HAS NOT TENDERED AN APPEARANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPELLATE RULE 16.
It ends with this from the Supreme Court:
THE TRANSFER PETITION IS PROCEDURALLY IMPROPER AND IS IS DISMISSED. PROCEEDINGS IN THIS APPELLATE CAUSE NUMBER ARE AT AN END.
The July 6th transfer denial in Jack Messer v. New Albany Police Department is discussed in this July 7th ILB entry.
