Civil plenary. Reverses finding by Lake Superior Court that I.C. 22-6-6-8 and 22-6-6-10 violate Article I, Section 21 of the Indiana Constitution. Any compulsion to provide services does not constitute a demand made by the state. Justice Rucker concurs in result with separate opinion.
Indiana Court of Appeals
Anonymous Physician and Anonymous Medical Group v. Richard Loucks Rogers
Civil tort. Reverses denial of motion filed by the doctor and medical group for summary judgment.

Reverses summary judgment for the plaintiffs on the action alleging the city of Indianapolis acted illegally in the course of changing its method for financing sanitary sewer improvement projects.
