Ind. Decisions - Court grants transfer in two cases

The formal transfer list will follow later today, but the ILB has received notice that two cases have been granted transfer:

Liberty Publishing, Inc. d/b/a Booster Club Productions v. Steve Carter, Attorney General & Nu-Sash of Indianapolis, Inc. d/b/a McKee Sunroom Designs (see summary of 6/25/07 COA opinion here), a consolidated appeal of the challenges of Liberty Publishing, Inc. (“Liberty”) and Nu-Sash of Indianapolis, Inc. (“Nu-Sash”) to the trial courts’ orders to enforce the Civil Investigation Demand (the “CID”) issued by the Attorney General of Indiana (the “AG”) to investigate the companies under the Indiana Deceptive Consumer’s Sales Act (the “IDCSA”) and the Indiana Home Improvement Contract Act (the “IHICA”), respectively. The COA affirmed the decisions of the trial courts to enforce the CIDs against Liberty and Nu-Sash, and ordered them to immediately produce relevant discovery pursuant to the CID.

Indiana State University v. Review Board, and William A. Lafief (see summary of 6/22/07 COA opinion here - 6th case) - ISU claimed that the Review Board erroneously concluded that LaFief had been discharged from his position at the university and was, therefore, eligible for benefits. Concluding that the Review Board erred in determining that LaFief was eligible for unemployment benefits because he had not been discharged from his employment at ISU, the COA reversed.
