Ind. Decisions - Three interesting opinions today from COA

One, in an issue of first impression, attempts to define what suffices as “reasonably particularity” in a request for public records submitted under the Access to Public Records Act (APRA).

A second affirms the trial court’s denial of Appellant's petition to reduce his Class D felony conviction for operating while intoxicated to a Class A misdemeanor, ruling that "the language used in the statute does not create a right to the reduction of one’s Class D felony conviction to a misdemeanor."

The third is a case where Appellant, who pleaded guilty to selling pirated movies out of his truck, successfully argued that seizure of his truck was not authorized by the forfeiture statute because the pirated movies he sold did not constitute stolen property because copyright infringement is not theft.
