Ind. Decisions - More on: Supreme Court decides one today, re State's Petitions in IBM case [Updated]

Updating this ILB post from this morning, Rick Callahan of the AP now has posted a brief story, that reads in part:

Indiana's highest court has granted the state's request for a new judge to oversee its long-running fight with IBM Corp. over the company's failed effort to privatize state welfare services.

The Indiana Supreme Court found Tuesday that the state is entitled to a change of judge, and said its opinion "is final."

The high court did not detail its reasoning, but its order says it "has exclusive, original jurisdiction" over Indiana's courts.

Indiana sought a new judge in May after a Marion County judge decided not to award the state any damages in the case.

[Updated at 5:30 PM] AP reporter Rick Callahan has now revised and expanded his earlier report.
