1:30 p.m. 55A01-1304-CT-182. Taylor University. After Martinsville West Middle School students Chance Jackson and Brandon Kent were injured during a school shooting by former student Michael Phelps, Jackson and Kent filed a lawsuit against the Metropolitan School District of Martinsville alleging that the School District breached its duty to keep Jackson and Kent safe. The School District filed a motion for summary judgment, which the trial court denied. The School District now appeals the trial court's order denying its motion for summary judgment, arguing that it is immune from liability under the Indiana Tort Claims Act, that the shooting was not foreseeable, and that the School District did not breach its duty to Jackson and Kent, and that Jackson was contributorily negligent.

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
