U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals
The following opinion was issued after IL deadline Thursday
Sarah E. Frey, Kevin Enright and Protect Our Woods Inc. v. Environmental Protection Agency and Gina McCarthy, Administrator
Civil. Affirms District Court rulings of summary judgment in favor of EPA and denial of motion for U.S. District Court Chief Judge Richard Young to disqualify himself based on prior rulings. Young correctly found plaintiffs’ motions were moot because a Bloomington PCB cleanup is ongoing, because plaintiffs are not prevailing parties or parties to the original consent decree, and as such they also are not entitled to attorney fees. Young’s decision not to disqualify himself did not deny plaintiffs due process.

Christine Anderson v. Indiana Insurance Company, a member of Liberty Mutual Group
Civil tort. Reverses summary judgment in favor of Indiana Insurance, holding the court erred in ruling that Anderson could not recover from Indiana Insurance for injuries sustained in a traffic accident because she had received payment from other sources in excess of the limits of her underinsured motorist policy limit. Remands for proceedings.

Criminal. Affirms one-year executed sentence for conviction of Class D felony resisting law enforcement.
