Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending Friday, August 29, 2014. It is two pages (and 22 cases) long.
Three transfers were granted this week:
- Cornelius Hines v. State of Indiana - This is a NFP June 17th opinion concluding:
The trial court concluded, “in weighing the two together I think that the prior criminal record and the type of offenses he’s committed outweigh any mitigating factor.” Transcript at 213. We agree with the trial court’s analysis. Hines’s sentence is not inappropriate.
- Kenneth Griesemer v. State of Indiana - This is a 2-1, May 23rd opinion where the majority concludes:
Because the evidence most favorable to the State permits an inference only that the police induced Griesemer’s criminal behavior, but does not contain any evidence permitting an inference that Griesemer was predisposed to commit patronizing a prostitute, entrapment was established as a matter of law, and we must reverse Griesemer’s conviction. Reversed.
- State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company v. Kimberly S. Earl and the Estate of Jerry Earl - This is a Jan. 24th, 2-1 opinion where the majority writes:
In this case, we are presented with an issue of first impression in Indiana. More particularly, appellant-defendant State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company (State Farm) asks us to join other states that have determined Uninsured Motorist (UM) insurance limits to be inadmissible. * * * State Farm contends that evidence of the bodily injury limit was both irrelevant and prejudicial. Determining that evidence of the bodily injury limit was in fact both irrelevant and prejudicial, we reverse and remand this cause to the trial court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
