02A03-1206-PL-272
Civil plenary. Affirms denial of Chang’s motion for summary judgment and her motion for directed verdict after she was dismissed from the nursing program, as well as the grant of summary judgment for Purdue University and other defendants on certain charges and the jury verdict against Chang.  She failed to designate evidence that the nursing department’s decision to dismiss her was arbitrary, capricious or made in bad faith, and the evidence sufficiently supported the jury’s verdict against her regarding the breach of contract claims.

Civil plenary. Affirms denial of a motion to correct error following the grant of summary judgment in favor of State Farm after the court reasoned that State Farm was entitled to complete set-off of any payment it would have owed to the appellants under the uninsured motorist endorsement they had purchased from State Farm because Alyse McGlaughlin settled with a third-party’s insurer for an amount equal to the UM endorsement’s policy limits.
