Indiana Court of Appeals
Steak N Shake Operations, Inc. v. National Waste Associates, LLC, et al.
Civil plenary. Reverses the Marion Superior Court’s grant of National Waste Associates’ motion for summary judgment and its denial of Steak ’n Shake’s motion for summary judgment. Holds there are genuine issues of material fact concerning the terms and conditions under which National employed Aspen Waste Systems of Missouri as its subcontractor. Holds that National is not entitled to judgment as a matter of law, but Steak ’n Shake is entitled to judgment as a matter of law on both its complaint and on National’s counterclaim. Remands with instructions for the court to enter summary judgment for Steak ’n Shake and to determine Steak ’n Shake’s damages.
