[ATG] Attorney General's statement on Federal Court ruling in Right to Work case

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Today a federal court dismissed the plaintiffs’ constitutional challenge to Indiana’s Right to Work statute the Legislature passed in 2012.  Chief Judge Philip Simon of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana issued his decision in the lawsuit Sweeney v. Daniels, which challenged the constitutionality of last year’s House Enrolled Act 1001. The court granted the State defendants’ motion to dismiss the plaintiffs’ amended complaint and entered judgment in favor of the State and against the plaintiffs.


As state government’s lawyer, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office defends state statutes from legal challenges plaintiffs file. Zoeller today issued this statement:


“The federal court’s decision supports the legal authority and policy decisions of the people’s elected representatives in the Legislature, and we appreciate the court’s thorough analysis. My office will continue to defend the statute from legal challenge or appeal in any future court action,” Zoeller said.
