Supreme Court dismisses moot appeal

January 1, 2008
The Indiana Supreme Court Feb. 26 granted transfer and dismissed a case involving state officials who violated the law by not following the public bidding process when they attempted to privatize a Fort Wayne development center that housed developmentally disabled adults.

In Anita Stuller, et al. v. Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., et al., No. 02A05-0601-CV-22, the high court dismissed the case as moot "because of events that transpired after the appeal was initiated," according to the order.

The development center at issue in the appeal - Fort Wayne State Developmental Center - closed after the appeal was initiated in fall 2007.
