Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending October 3, 2014
[Search all the Transfer Lists: The ILB feature, "Search the ILB Transfer Lists," allows you to do just that, back to Feb. 2004. Check it out. Read the instructions. Note that the search is now current through the June 20, 2014 list.]
Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending Friday, October 3, 2014. It is two pages (and 22 cases) long.
Two transfers were granted last week:
- In re the Paternity of: D.M.Y.: M.S.R. v. B.Y. - this transfer was granted Oct. 1st with opinion. See the ILB summary here.
- Drakkar R. Willis v. State of Indiana - In the now vacated 9-page, 2-1 opinion, Judge Crone wrote:
Drakkar R. Willis challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction for class A misdemeanor criminal trespass. We affirm. * * *
BAKER, J., concurs.
BARNES, J., dissents with opinion. [which begins, at p. 9] I respectfully dissent. I am familiar with and have read the decision in Meehan v. State, 7 N.E.3d 255 (Ind. 2014). I do not believe that case demands or commands that the basic and longstanding tenets of the definition of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” be altered. Others may disagree. * * *
We are not in the business of horseshoes and hand grenades, where “close” is good enough. I am convinced the State has failed in its burden of proof and vote to reverse.
