- 11:00 AM - Price v. State (29A04-1408-CR-405) Amy Ann Price was convicted of four counts of Class B felony burglary. The court imposed four consecutive eight-year sentences, but it suspended three years of each sentence. On appeal, Price argues that the trial court erroneously denied her motion to suppress her confession and the evidence found in her purse because the State violated her constitutional rights under Article 1, Section 11 of the Indiana Constitution by searching her purse without giving her a Pirtle warning. She also argues that she was prejudiced by the court's jury instructions, which allegedly misled the jury by emphasizing specific evidence that implied her guilt.. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Chief Judge Vaidik, Judges May and Barnes. [Where: Court of Appeals Courtroom (WEBCAST)]
Next week's oral arguments before the Court of Appeals (week of 8/17/15):
Wednesday, August 19
- 1:00 PM - 2007 East Meadows LP v. RCHM Phoenix Partners LLC (49A05-1407-PL-300) RCM Phoenix Partners, LLC ("Phoenix") entered into a purchase agreement with the predecessor-in-interest to Texas-based East Meadows, LP ("Meadows"). While Meadows struggled to obtain bank approval to assume the mortgage on the property, the death of a child in the apartment complex attracted the attention of the Indianapolis Housing Authority, which brought an enforcement action against Phoenix regarding the manner in which it operated and managed the apartments. After closing was delayed several times at Meadows' request, it was still unable to obtain approval to assume the mortgage. When Meadows requested another extension of the closing date, Phoenix refused. Meadows then announced that it would not close on the agreement, citing the enforcement action as the reason and claiming that Phoenix was in breach of the purchase agreement. Phoenix sought a declaratory judgment that it was not in breach of contract and did not commit fraud. Meadows counter-claimed, alleging that Phoenix committed breach of contract and fraud and seeking a declaratory judgment, a constructive trust, and specific performance. Both parties moved for partial summary judgment, and the trial court granted partial summary in favor of Phoenix. Meadows appeals and claims: (1) that there are genuine issues of material fact regarding whether Phoenix breached the terms of the purchase agreement; (2) that the trial court erred in concluding that Meadows was not entitled to specific performance; and (3) that there are genuine issues of material fact regarding whether Phoenix committed fraud. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges May, Roob and Mathias. [Where: Court of Appeals Courtroom (WEBCAST)]
