Ind. Decisions - Transfer granted in “Litigation Hell” case

The ILB has just received notice that last Thursday, Jan. 15th, the Supreme Court granted transfer in the case of Lawrence Gunkel and Judy Lynn Gunkel v. Renovations, Inc. by Wagler and Menno D. Wagler, et al. The NFP opinion, issued June 27, 2008, included this quote from a dissent by Judge Kirsch:

It will soon be ten years since the Gunkels entered into a contract for construction of their new home. During this decade, they have not been served well by either their contractors or our legal system. Were Dante Alighieri alive today, this case would provide him with the material to add a tenth circle to his Inferno and call it “Litigation Hell.”
See the COA ILB summary here, 5th NFP opinion.

No sign yet of the Clerk's Transfer List from the week ending Jan. 16th, which presumably also includes notice of the Jan. 12th transfer denial by the Supreme Court of the Smith & Wesson v. City of Gary petition.
