Ind. Courts - More on: NCAA issues sent by 7th Circuit to the Indiana Supreme Court

This Oct. 18, 2010 ILB entry quotes a 7th Circuit opinion on the question of: Does the NCAA's system of distributing Final Four tickets constitutes an illegal lottery? The 7th Circuit, in a per curiam opinion, wrote:

At this juncture, we believe that affording the Indiana Supreme Court the opportunity to interpret the application of the Indiana statutes involved here appears to be the most prudent course of action. Therefore, to that end, we grant the petition for rehearing, vacate our opinion issued on July 16, 2010, and respectfully certify the following questions to the Indiana Supreme Court:
In a 2-page order dated Oct. 29, 2010, but only posted within the last day or two, the Indiana Supreme Court accepts the certified questions, pursuant to Ind. App. Rule 64. Briefing and other details follow.
