Indiana Court of Appeals Allows Claim Against School for Off-Campus Death of Student to Proceed to Trial
This week we examine the decision Murray v. Indianapolis Public Schools, which allowed claims against a school for the off-campus death of a student. We also briefly discuss two other interesting decisions from the Indiana Court of Appeals, which were handed down this week.
When Does a Proprietor Owe a Duty to Stop One Patron from Shooting Another? Indiana Court of Appeals Weighs In
This week we look at the remarkable decision in Hamilton v. Steak’n Shake Operations Inc., which took a deep dive into the analyses of Goodwin v. Yeakle’s Sports Bar & Grill and Rogers v. Martin to conclude that a restaurant proprietor owes a duty to take reasonable precautions to protect a “restaurant patron who has been subjected to escalating threats and taunts” from “injury resulting after the encounter culminated in physical violence.”
This week we discuss Walters v. JS Aviation, Inc., which reversed summary judgment against a woman who was injured when she missed a step down at an aircraft hangar that may not have been properly marked.
