10 a.m. 93A02-1202-EX-127. After Boulder Acquisition Corporation (“BAC”) merged with Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (“ACS”), the Indiana Department of Workforce Development determined that BAC was the successor employer for ACS and each of ACS’s 26 subsidiaries. Therefore, the Department combined the 27 previously separate experience accounts for purposes of unemployment contributions into a single account and assessed a single contribution rate. BAC protested the determination, but the Liability Administrative Law Judge agreed with the Department, concluding BAC was the successor employer to ACS and all of its subsidiaries because it had acquired “the organization, trade, or business, or substantially all the assets” of ACS and the subsidiaries. BAC now appeals, contending it acquired only ACS, such that the Department’s determination should be reversed, separate experience accounts restored, contribution rates readjusted, and overpayments by BAC refunded.

  1. Major social engineering imposed by judicial order well in advance of democratic change, has been the story of the whole post ww2 period. Contraception, desegregation, abortion, gay marriage: all rammed down the throats of Americans who didn't vote to change existing laws on any such thing, by the unelected lifetime tenure Supreme court heirarchs. Maybe people came to accept those things once imposed upon them, but, that's accommodation not acceptance; and surely not democracy. So let's quit lying to the kids telling them this is a democracy. Some sort of oligarchy, but no democracy that's for sure, and it never was. A bourgeois republic from day one.

  2. JD Massur, yes, brings to mind a similar stand at a Texas Mission in 1836. Or Vladivostok in 1918. As you seemingly gloat, to the victors go the spoils ... let the looting begin, right?

  3. I always wondered why high fence deer hunting was frowned upon? I guess you need to keep the population steady. If you don't, no one can enjoy hunting! Thanks for the post! Fence

  4. Whether you support "gay marriage" or not is not the issue. The issue is whether the SCOTUS can extract from an unmentionable somewhere the notion that the Constitution forbids government "interference" in the "right" to marry. Just imagine time-traveling to Philadelphia in 1787. Ask James Madison if the document he and his fellows just wrote allowed him- or forbade government to "interfere" with- his "right" to marry George Washington? He would have immediately- and justly- summoned the Sergeant-at-Arms to throw your sorry self out into the street. Far from being a day of liberation, this is a day of capitulation by the Rule of Law to the Rule of What's Happening Now.

  5. With today's ruling, AG Zoeller's arguments in the cases of Obamacare and Same-sex Marriage can be relegated to the ash heap of history. 0-fer
