7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Billy Julian v. Sam Hanna, et. al.
Criminal. Reverses District Court grant of summary judgment to defendant parties in a malicious prosecution case and remands for further proceedings, holding that Billy Julian’s claim was improperly dismissed as untimely. The panel held that the two-year window for the claim did not begin until November 2010, when charges against him were dismissed, and therefore filing of the claim in July 2011 was timely.

Civil plenary. Reverses a trial court grant of summary judgment in favor of Shambaugh & Son and other defendants and remands for further proceedings. The court concluded that a subrogation agreement in a contract for renovations of the main library branch in Fort Wayne does not preclude the library from seeking to recover pollution cleanup costs related to a diesel spill on neighboring properties that the library argues was caused by a contractor rupturing a basement fuel line connected to a generator.
