Ind. Decisions - One today from the Supreme Court

In Chrysler Group, LLC v. Review Board of the Indiana Dept. of Workforce Development and T.A., et al., a 14-page, 5-0 opinion, Chief Justice Shepard writes:

As the U.S. economy collapsed in 2008, Chrysler offered a buyout program to employees in Kokomo, Indiana. Those employees then applied for unemployment benefits under Indiana’s Unemployment Compensation Act and their claims were initially denied. The Review Board of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development ultimately awarded benefits under a narrow provision of the Act. While this provision has now been repealed, its application is a matter of real consequence to these parties. We affirm the Board.
