[SUPREME] Indiana University East to host Indiana Supreme Court for oral argument
Start Date: 4/4/2013 All Day
End Date: 4/4/2013
Entry Description

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear oral argument at Indiana University East on Tuesday, April 23 at 12:45 p.m. EDT. The argument will be held in Vivian Auditorium, located in Whitewater Hall, at 2325 Chester Boulevard, Richmond, Indiana 47374. The argument is open to the press and public, though seating is limited.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case of Brian Yost v. Wabash College, Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, Inc., Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity – Indiana Gamma Chapter at Wabash College, and Nathan Cravens, 54S01-1303-CT-161. A former fraternity pledge sued the college, local fraternity chapter, and national fraternity after being injured in activities involving several members of the fraternity. The trial court awarded summary judgment in favor of the defendants. The Court of Appeals affirmed, unanimously as to the national fraternity and by a 2 to 1 vote as to the college and local fraternity chapter. Yost v. Wabash College, 976 N.E.2d 724 (Ind. Ct. App. 2012), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal. The Court of Appeals opinion can be found at http://www.in.gov/judiciary/opinions/pdf/10021201tac.pdf.

The argument will last approximately 40 minutes, with each side having about 20 minutes to argue. The Court will take the matter under advisement and hand down a decision after considering the case. There is no timeline for a decision.
