9 a.m. 93S02-1310-EX-704. Fishers Adolescent Catholic Enrichment Society, Inc. ("FACES") provided enrichment opportunities to the homeschooled children of its member families. One family, the Bridgewaters, filed a complaint with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission ("ICRC") alleging FACES discriminated against their daughter by failing to accommodate her medical disability at a FACES sponsored dinner-dance. Thereafter, FACES expelled the Bridgewaters. The ICRC concluded that although FACES did not fail to accommodate the daughter's disability, it did commit unlawful discrimination by expelling the Bridgewaters in retaliation for their filing the complaint. The Court of Appeals affirmed, in part. Fishers Adolescent Catholic Enrichment Soc'y Inc. v. Bridgewater, 990 N.E.2d 29 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
