7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Adam Hartman v. EBSCO Industries Inc., et al
13-3398
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, Judge Theresa L. Springmann.
Civil. Affirms summary judgment in favor of defendants on Hartman’s lawsuit alleging negligence and strict liability after he was injured accidently by a gun. Indiana has a 10-year statute of repose for products-liability actions and his gun was then 14 years old. There are two exceptions to the statute, but he cannot satisfy either one.

Cheryl Beardsley v. Carolyn W. Colvin, acting commissioner of Social Security
13-3609
U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Fort Wayne Division, Judge Joseph S. Van Bokkelen.
Civil. Reverses District Court’s affirmation of the denial of benefits and remands the case to the commissioner of Social Security for proceedings consistent with this opinion. Errors by the administrative law judge undermined the “logical bridge” between evidence and conclusion that is needed to affirm a denial of disability benefits.
