This week's oral arguments before the Court of Appeals

This Wednesday, Sept. 17th:

4:00 PM EST - Foundations of East Chicago v. City of East Chicago - In 2007 the general assembly passed a statute that would authorize East Chicago to void any term of a contract between the local casino licensee and Foundations of East Chicago, Inc. to provide money from gambling revenues for local economic development. East Chicago did so, and redirected to itself the money the Casino had been paying to Foundations. Foundations challenged the statute as unconstitutional. The trial court determined Foundations had no standing to bring its challenge, but then went on to find the statute did not violate the constitution. The Scheduled Panel Members are: Chief Judge Baker, Judges May and Brown. [Where: Commissioner's Hearing Room, Courthouse, Evansville, Indiana ] [Note - location changed to: Misdemeanor Court, 2nd floor, Courthouse, Evansville, Indiana ]

When the checks Kephart wrote to Caesar's were returned for insufficient funds, Caesar's sued to recover the amount owed. Kephart filed a counter-claim alleging that Caesar's knew that she suffered from a compulsive gambling disorder and owed her a duty to refrain from inducing her to frequent their casino. The trial court denied Caesar's motion to dismiss Kephart's counter-claim, and Caesar's appeals.The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Darden, Mathias and Crone. [Where: Reardon Auditorium Lobby, Anderson University, Anderson, Indiana ]
