Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In A.B. v. Housing Auth. of South Bend (ND Ind., Simon), a 4-page opinion, Judge Bauer writes:

The singular question before this Court concerns A.B.’s appeal of the July 8, 2011 district court order denying A.B.’s motion for a preliminary injunction to prevent the Housing Authority from pursuing the eviction in the Indiana state court. But due to its current procedural posture, we will not review the district court’s ruling on the merits. Since the Indiana state court has already entered a June 24, 2011 final order evicting A.B., this Court lacks jurisdiction for review; there no longer remains a live controversy. Thus, we cannot grant the relief that A.B. seeks and the appeal is dismissed for mootness.
