Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court issues one today

In Robert Keene v. Marion County Superior Court, a 3-page opinion, the Court follows its opinion yesterday in Montgomery v. Bd. of Trs. of Purdue Univ., which held that an Indiana governmental employee is not subject to the Indiana Age Discrimination Act. As he did yesterday, Justice Rucker dissented. His dissent yesterday concluded:

So here we have an employee fired because of age but in effect has no remedy, according to today’s opinion, despite both state and federal legislation designed to protect employees fired because of age. Certainly the legislature could not have intended the result reached in this case.
