Ind. Decisions - Oral arguments this month
The Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments tomorrow (Mar 3, 2005 9:00 AM - 9:40 AM EST) in the case of IDEM v. West, et al. The Marion Superior Court affirmed a decision of the State Employees' Appeals Commission finding IDEM employees had been discriminated against on basis of age. The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding there was sufficient evidence supporting the finding and the Commission acted within its authority in ordering creation of new jobs for employees if necessary. Indiana Dept. of Envtl. Mgmt. v. West, 812 N.E.2d 1099 (Ind. Ct. App. 2004), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case, thus vacating the opinion of the Court of Appeals, and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal. Attorney for Appellant; Frances Barrow of Indianapolis, IN. Attorney for Appellee; Melinda O'Dell of Mooresville, IN.
