Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 2 opinion(s) today (and 1 NFP memorandum decisions)

For publication opinions today (2):

In K.S. v. Review Board of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, an 8-page opinion, Judge Mathias writes:

K.S. appeals the decision of the Review Board of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (“the Board”) denying his claim for unemployment benefits. K.S. argues that he is eligible for unemployment benefits because he voluntarily left his employment for medical reasons and to deal with an issue of domestic violence. We affirm.
In State of Indiana v. William F. Stevens, a 10-page opinion, Judge Mathias writes:
The State of Indiana (“the State”) appeals the trial court’s order granting William Stevens’s (“Stevens”) motion to suppress evidence obtained pursuant to his warrantless arrest. The State presents a single issue for review, namely, whether the trial court abused its discretion in concluding that law enforcement lacked probable cause to arrest Stevens after Stevens attempted to purchase pseudoephedrine at a drug store. We reverse and remand. * * *

Therefore, under the unique facts and circumstances before us, we conclude that the trial court abused its discretion in granting Stevens’s motion to suppress. We accordingly reverse the trial court’s order suppressing the evidence recovered as a result of Stevens’s warrantless arrest and remand this matter for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
