The following Indiana Supreme Court decision came in after IL deadline Friday.
Adam Gaff v. Indiana-Purdue University of Fort Wayne
02S03-1604-PL-201
Civil plenary. Affirms summary judgment for IPFW in employment discrimination case after Adam Gaff claimed wrongful termination based on discrimination and retaliation claims. IPFW met its burden of proof in negating Gaff’s claims as his claims did not fall under any protected class of Indiana’s statute. The COA had ruled based on the federal statute, but the Supreme Court said Indiana’s summary judgment standard should apply.
