Not-for-Publication (NFP) Opinions
The Indiana Supreme Court, on August 21, 2006, issued an order granting a request by the Indiana Court of Appeals allowing the Appeals Court to post "Not for Publication" (NFP) memorandum opinions to this website.
Members of the bar and the public should note that the status of "Not-for-Publication" memorandum opinions has not changed as a result of this order, and the fact that they are posted here does not constitute their "publication" in the terms laid forth by Appellate Rule 65. According to the rule, "Not-for-Publication" opinions "shall not be regarded as precedent and shall not be cited to any court except by the parties to the case to establish res judicata, collateral estoppel, or law of the case."
NFP Opinions are posted to this website as a matter of public access to court information; these documents have always been and continue to be available to the public through the Appellate Clerk's Office.
