Indiana Supreme Court Rejects Claim of Right to Resist Illegal Police Entry into Your Own Home

INDIANAPOLIS

The Indiana Supreme Court has affirmed its controversial ruling that Hoosiers have no right to ever physically resist police entry into their homes.

In a 4-1 decision, the state's high court said Tuesday the common law rule that "a man's home is his castle" cannot be used as a defense if a person is accused of attacking a police officer entering a home in an official capacity.
