Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending Friday, January 17, 2014. It is two pages (and 25 cases) long.
Three transfers were granted last week:
- Nick McIlquham v. State of Indiana - see Aug. 14, 2013 ILB summary
- Christopher Cross v. State of Indiana - This is a Nov. 6, 2013 opinion that concluded:
Moreover, we find Cross’s claim that the Class A felony classifications should be found to be disproportionate in light of the upcoming overhaul to the criminal classifications and sentencing structure, which has been approved by the General Assembly in House Enrolled Act 1006, to be unpersuasive. * * * In sum, we reject Cross’s contention that the classification of Cross’s acts of dealing in cocaine and possession of cocaine as Class A felonies was disproportionate to the nature of his offenses. With regard to his use of a handgun during the commission of the dealing offense, we conclude that Cross was not punished twice for the same act in violation of the prohibitions against double jeopardy. We also conclude that Cross’s conviction for the lesser-included offense of Class A misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license must be vacated.
- In the Matter of the Adoption of C.A.H., minor, J.N.E. v. L.M.H. - This was a July 23, 2013 NFP COA opinion where the issue was "whether the trial court erred when it denied her motion because she contends that the adoption decree, which was entered without notice to her, was void for lack of personal jurisdiction and violated her due process rights." The COA affirmed.
