Indiana's chief justice urges deal over House boycott fines...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana's chief justice is urging Democratic and Republican lawmakers to work out their own differences that still linger from two straight years of legislative walkouts.
The state Supreme Court heard arguments Thursday in a dispute over the collection of fines that majority Republicans imposed on House Democrats who took part in boycotts in 2011 and 2012.
At the end of the hearing, Chief Justice Brent Dickson said the dispute was political and he urged both sides to reach a compromise.
Lawyers for the Indiana attorney general's office and Democratic legislators who filed the lawsuit say they believe both sides will be willing to talk.
Most House Democrats spent weeks at an Illinois hotel in 2011 to block action on several Republican initiatives.
