Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court accepts certified question from SD Ind.
Kole v. Faultless, an order filed Dec. 20, 2011, begins:
Pursuant to Indiana Appellate Rule 64, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana has certified a question of Indiana state law for this Court’s consideration. The question arises in Kole, et al. v. Faultless, et al., Case No. 1:10-cv-01735-TWP-DML (S.D. Ind.). The question, which we have slightly rephrased, is:May a political unit reorganize into a city under Indiana Code article 36-1.5 (the “Reorganization Act”) in a manner that eliminates voting rights recognized under Indiana Code sections 36-4-5-2 and 36-4-6-3(i), including reorganization as a city with (1) a council elected entirely at large, and (2) a mayor appointed by that council?The certified question, which each member of this Court has considered, is hereby ACCEPTED pursuant to Indiana Appellate Rule 64.
