In an order filed a week ago and now available online, the Supreme Court accepts a certified question from the federal district court for the ND Indiana, in the case of Robertson v. Medical Assurance Co., Inc. n/k/a Proassurance Indemnity Co., Inc. The question:

Does Indiana law allow the Patient’s Compensation Fund to pursue a claim against an insurer for the insurer’s breach of its duty of good faith to its insured, through the doctrine of equitable subrogation?
