Police investigate threats to Indiana Supreme Court

Legal Business Posted on

Capitol Police in Indianapolis are investigating harassing phone calls and email messages to the Indiana Supreme Court following a recent contentious ruling.

Police won't say how many calls and messages have been received or whether they're addressed to a specific justice. Court spokeswoman Kathryn Dolan tells The Times of Munster the threats are mostly directed at police officers.

The state's highest court ruled Thursday that Indiana residents have no right to resist police making an unlawful police entry into their homes. In a 3-2 decision written by Justice Steven David, the court ruled that people person confronted with an illegal police entry into their homes should allow entry and sue later for damages. It said resisting entry increases the risk of escalating violence.
