Ind. Decisions - "Indiana Supreme Court won't hear challenge to ruling allowing use of David Bisard blood test results" [Updated]

Updating this Oct. 12, 2012 ILB entry, the Indianapolis Star this afternoon is reporting, in a story by Tim Evans:

The Indiana Supreme Court today declined to hear a challenge to a Court of Appeals ruling that allows prosecutors to use contested blood test results in the trial of suspended Indianapolis police officer David Bisard.

The court of appeals in September reversed a Marion County court ruling that the blood test results could not be used in Bisard’s trial.

“The ruling of the Indiana Supreme Court today makes final the Court of Appeals opinion establishing that the blood draw performed on Officer David Bisard on August 6, 2010 was appropriate for the purposes of both the operating a vehicle while intoxicated and the criminal recklessness charges,” Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said inb a statement issued by his office.

Here is a list of all the "Bisard" entries.

[Updated] Here is the vote in the Supreme Court's denial today of transfer:

ALL JUSTICES CONCUR, EXCEPT FOR DICKSON, C.J., WHO VOTES TO GRANT THE PETITION TO TRANSFER, AND MASSA, J., WHO DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE DECISION OF THIS MATTER.
