Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending June 24, 2016
Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending Friday, June 24, 2016. It is two pages (and 23 cases) long.
Four transfers were granted last week:
- State of Indiana v. David Brown - This was a NFP COA ruling from March 31, 2016, where the COA sua sponte decided the State did not have authority to bring the appeal.
- Marvin Beville v. State of Indiana - This was a 2-1 NFP COA ruling from March 29, 2016 - a snippet from the dissent:
The majority finds, as argued by the State, that “after watching the video [Beville] will learn the identity of the CI.” Slip op. at 7. However, other than the State’s mere assertion, the record does not support such a conclusion. The record does not reveal that the trial court examined the video and made such a finding, and the record on appeal does not contain a copy of the video.
- KS & E Sports, et al. v. Dwayne H. Runnels - This was a 2-1 March 17, 2016 COA opinion, holding, per a quote from Reuters, that a law "immunizing gun manufacturers and dealers from lawsuits by victims of illegal shootings does not offer blanket protection for defendants that put weapons in the hands of criminals."
- Termination: R S v. Indiana Department of Child Services - This was a March 23, 2016 NFP COA opinion affirming the involuntary termination of a father's parental rights: "While it seems Father and Child have a bond, we cannot say the trial court’s conclusion is unsupported by the findings."
- L.C. v. W.Z. - this is a 2/16/16 COA decision. Transfer Denied - All Justices concur, except Rush, C.J., and Slaughter, J., who vote to grant the petition to transfer.
Order argument was held in this case on June 23rd. You may watch the argument here.
