The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Tuesday:
E.F. Transit, Inc. v. David Cook, et al.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division. Judge Richard L. Young.
Civil. Reverses the dismissal of E.F. Transit’s declaratory and injunctive action that argued enforcement of Indiana’s prohibited-interest statutes is preempted by federal law. Finds the Indiana Supreme Court’s ruling in Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission v. Spirted Sales, LLC, removes any ripeness barrier to the federal lawsuit. Remands for further proceedings.
