Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court vacates transfer in case argued Oct. 2nd

The Supreme Court heard oral argument Oct. 2nd in State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Services v. Settlers Life, a case where transfer had been granted and the Court of Appeals opinion vacated. You can watch it here.

In an order filed Oct. 7th, the Court has decided:

After further review, including considering the points presented by counsel at oral argument and discussion among the Justices in conference after the oral argument, the Court has determined that it should not assume jurisdiction over this appeal and that the Court of Appeals opinion reported at State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service v. Settlers Life Insurance Co., 5 N.E.3d 1170 (Ind. Ct. App. 2014), should be reinstated as Court of Appeals precedent. Accordingly, the order granting transfer is VACATED and transfer is hereby DENIED. Pursuant to Appellate Rule 58(B), this appeal is at an end.
