Opinions Dec. 31, 2020

The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Wednesday:
Paula McAllister v. Innovation Ventures, LLC, doing business as Living Essential
20-1779
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division. Chief Judge Jon DeGuilio.
Civil. Affirms the Northern District Court’s finding that Paula McAllister was not a “qualified individual” under the Americans with Disabilities Act when she claimed that her former employer, Innovation Ventures, failed to accommodate her during the summer of 2016 in violation of the ADA. Finds the district court correctly found that any request for additional leave was not reasonable, and therefore, McAllister did not establish a genuine issue that she was a qualified individual under the ADA.

Thursday opinions
Indiana Court of Appeals
Tax Analysts, et al. v. Indiana Economic Development Corporation
20A-PL-1141
Civil plenary. Affirms the Marion Superior Court order denying Tax Analysts’ request under the Access to Public Records Act for records of the city of Indianapolis’ response to requests for proposals related to the relocation of Amazon’s future second headquarters. Finds the trial court did not err in ruling that the records sought were exempt from disclosure because they were created during negotiations and did not include terms of a final offer of public financial resources.

M.G. v. S.K., et al.
20A-DR-712
Domestic relations. Reverses the Marion Superior Court order granting father S.K. joint physical custody, finding the trial court did not enter an order in compliance with Indiana Trial Rule 52(A) with findings and conclusions supporting its ruling.

Derek R. Aguilar v. State of Indiana
20A-PC-949
Post conviction. Affirms the Adams Circuit Court, finding no error in its denial of Derek Aguilar’s petition for post-conviction relief in which he argued he should have been released to probation, not parole.
