This Wednesday, July 16th:

10:00 AM - Star Transport, Inc. v. Hervey Byard - Hervey Byard was struck by a car when he was attempting to direct traffic around a tractor-trailer, driven by Jeffrey Cottingham, that was stopped after a minor one-vehicle accident and partially blocking State Road 421 in Osgood. Byard sued Cottingham and Star Transport, alleging they were partially at fault for his injuries, and a jury found in Byard's favor. The first issue on appeal is whether the trial court properly instructed the jury that it could rely on the "rescue doctrine" theory of liability against Cottingham and Star Transport. Cottingham and Star Transport also challenge the trial court's refusal to instruct the jury on the defense of incurred risk and its requiring Star Transport and Cottingham to share peremptory juror challenges with the driver of the vehicle that stuck Byard. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Vaidik, Barnes and Bradford. [Where: Indiana Court of Appeals Courtroom]
