Ind. Decisions - "The 7th Circuit has asked the Kansas Supreme Court to determine whether FedEx drivers are employees or independent contractors"
The 7th Circuit has asked state supreme courts to weigh in on cases with some frequency in the past two years.Note: The headline to the CHNS story probably should say "Kansas" rather than "Indiana."
In American Federation of Teachers v. Board of Education of the City of Chicago, the Illinois Supreme Court weighed in on whether tenured teachers laid off for economic reasons had the right to be rehired when openings arose.
And in George v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, the Indiana Supreme Court found that the ticket-distribution plan for the Men's Final Four did not constitute a "lottery" under state law.
The 7th Circuit subsequently adopted both courts' opinions.
