Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 2 today (and 5 NFP)

For publication opinions today (2):

In William A. Boyd and Janice Ann Boyd v. State of Indiana, a 8-page opinion, Sr. Judge Shepard writes:

William and Janice Boyd challenge the State’s acquisition of their property for use in constructing Interstate 69 through southwest Indiana.

They contend that various federal environmental statutes applicable to federally-assisted projects have not been satisfied. Compliance with these environmental protections is reviewable during both administrative and judicial proceedings at various stages of a project. State and federal agencies and the courts have found I-69 in compliance at multiple steps along the way.

Because none of the Boyds’ claims are justiciable in eminent domain proceedings, we affirm the taking.

In David E. Lyons v. State of Indiana , an 11-page opinion, Judge Baker writes:
Appellant-defendant David E. Lyons appeals his convictions for five counts of Child Molesting,1 a class A felony. Specifically, Lyons contends that his convictions must be reversed because fundamental error occurred when a child psychologist was permitted to testify about various characteristics and behaviors that are common in child sexual abuse victims. Finding no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
