Indiana Supreme Court accepts 1 case on transfer

April 25, 2016

The Indiana Supreme Court granted transfer in one case last week that it decided Friday, unanimously denying the 12 others that were up for transfer.

In Adam Gaff v. Indiana-Purdue University of Fort Wayne, the Supreme Court clarified a decision in which the Court of Appeals ruled the federal summary judgment standard applied as Gaff was seeking a wrongful termination suit against his employer. However, the Supreme Court said Indiana’s standard applied, which is more stringent, but still affirmed the judgment of the COA and affirmed summary judgment for IPFW.

Of the 12 cases that were denied, eight were criminal or post-conviction relief cases. The complete list can be viewed here.
