Appellate Practice News

Posted on: Dec 18, 2019

By Mitchell Osterday, Indiana Supreme Court

The Indiana Supreme Court has issued 22 judicial opinions since the start of the state’s new fiscal year on July 1, 2019. Those 22 opinions are broken down here.

Ten out of 15 (66 percent) of the opinions issued by an author were unanimous. Two additional opinions, Kenworth v. Seventy-Seven Limited and A.M. v. State of Indiana, were unanimous with the exception of either a partial concurrence or a concurrence in the judgment with a separate opinion. Only three opinions by an author and the one opinion on rehearing contained a dissenting opinion—State v. Timbs (Justice Slaughter dissenting), C.S., Jr./Z.T. v. State (Justice David concurring in part/dissenting in part), American Consulting v. Hannum Wagle & Cline (Justice Slaughter concurring in part/dissenting in part), and IBM v. State (Justice Slaughter dissenting from partial grant of rehearing). 

A full listing of these opinions can be found on the Indiana Supreme Court’s website here. Oral arguments of the court can be streamed live or from the court’s oral argument archive here.
