Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court grants transfer in KW v. State

In one of the cases argued yesterday before the Supreme Court, K.W. v. State of Indiana (worth watching), the Supreme Court had not decided whether to grant transfer - here is the calendar write-up:

Based on an in-school encounter with a police officer serving as a school liaison officer, K.W. was adjudicated delinquent for an act that would be resisting law enforcement if committed by an adult. The Court of Appeals reversed, holding the officer was not engaged in the execution of the officer’s duties as a law enforcement officer at the time of the encounter. K.W. v. State 976 N.E.2d 61 (Ind. Ct. App. Aug. 28, 2012), trans. pending. The State has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
Today the docket entry shows:
CAUSE NO.: 49S02-1301-JV-00020
LOWER COURT CAUSE NO.: 49D091109JD2341

K.W. V. STATE OF INDIANA

YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED THAT THE SUPREME COURT HAS ON THIS
DAY, 01/10/2013, ORDERED AS FOLLOWS:

APPELLEE'S PETITION FOR TRANSFER IS HEREBY GRANTED.
BRENT E. DICKSON, CHIEF JUSTICE
(ORDER REC'D 01/10/13 AT 3:30 P.M.) ENTERED ON 01/11/13 KJ
