The Indiana Court of Appeals hits the road Thursday to hear arguments at Anderson University in a case involving a compulsive gambler and what duty the casino had to prevent her from gambling.

In Caesars Riverboat Casino LLC v. Genevieve M. Kephart, No. 31A01-0711-CV-530, Caesars Riverboat Casino sued Genevieve Kephart to recover $125,000 after the six counterchecks she wrote to the casino were returned for insufficient funds. Kephart filed a counterclaim alleging the casino knew she suffered from compulsive gambling disorder and owed her a duty to refrain from enticing her to visit the casino.

The trial court denied Caesars' motion to dismiss Kephart's counterclaim, resulting in this appeal.

Judges Terry Crone, Carr Darden, and Paul Mathias will hear the case. The arguments will be at 2 p.m. in the Reardon Auditorium Lobby, Anderson University, 1100 E. Fifth St., Anderson.
