The State of Indiana plans to appeal a Brown County judge’s decision that its attempt to block Bloomington’s annexation plan is unconstitutional.
The state filed a notice of appeal Monday. Indiana trial court rules say the Indiana Supreme Court must hear any appeals of a decision that declares a state or federal statute unconstitutional.
In his decision last month, Judge Frank Nardi agreed and said the legislation violated the state’s constitution.
The state still has to file its formal appeal.
