Ind. Decisions - More on cancelled oral argment in Black

A look at the Upcoming Oral Arguments entry from Monday shows that the oral argument in the case of Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Insurance. v. Tim Black was cancelled. Today the Court has posted this Order, filed Sept. 11th, that reads in part [emphasis by ILB]:

By order dated June 4, 2012, the Court granted transfer of jurisdiction over this appeal and vacated the Court of Appeals opinion. The parties have now filed a motion to dismiss this appeal because they have reached a settlement. * * *

Being duly advised, the motion is GRANTED and this appeal is DISMISSED. The oral argument setting for September 10, 2012, was vacated by prior order. Per Indiana Appellate Rule 58(A), the Court of Appeals’ opinion, reported as Comm’r of Ind. Dep’t of Ins. v. Black, 962 N.E.2d 675 (Ind. Ct. App. 2012), remains vacated and is not precedent.
