Indiana Supreme Court
Dismissal with Prejudice

Reminger Obtains Indiana Supreme Court Victory in Favor of Construction Company

Reminger’s Indianapolis attorneys received a big victory from the Indiana Supreme Court, affirming the Monroe County Circuit Court’s dismissal of a negligence lawsuit against our construction company client. This case involved catastrophic injuries from a semi-truck accident, where the Plaintiff’s attorney tried to sue new defendants (who were involved in the road construction in the vicinity of the accident) in a different county after Plaintiff had obtained a judgment through a bench trial against the truck driver and trucking company. Jim Scheidler and Nick Brunette obtained a dismissal of the case with prejudice from the Monroe County Court. Plaintiff then appealed the Monroe County Court’s dismissal to the Indiana Court of Appeals.

Katie Haire joined the team for the appellate briefing process.  After the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court, the defense attorneys moved the Indiana Supreme Court to accept transfer. Notably, the Indiana Supreme Court agrees to hear only about 10% of all civil cases in which transfer is sought; here, the Supreme Court granted transfer, vacated the Court of Appeals’ decision, and affirmed the trial court’s dismissal with prejudice.
