[APPEALS] Melton v. Stephens 14A01-1308-CT-356

Entry Description
This interlocutory appeal arose from a motor vehicle collision between Appellee-Plaintiff Stacy S. Stephens (Stephens) and Appellants-Defendants James K. Melton (Melton) and Perdue Foods LLC (Perdue) (collectively, Appellants), in Lawrence County, Illinois. In a motion for partial summary judgment, Perdue advocated for the application of Indiana's substantive law on the collision, while Stephens asserted the application of Illinois law in her response to Perdue's motion. Relying on Indiana's choice of law rules, the trial court concluded that because the contacts between this cause of action and the State of Illinois were substantial, the lex loci delicti (i.e., Illinois' substantive law) governed the facts of this cause.
Appellants requested oral argument to explain Indiana's choice of law rules enunciated by our Supreme Court's ruling in Hubbard Manufacturing Co., Inc. v. Greeson, 515 N.E.2d 1071 (Ind. 1987) and later clarified by Simon v. U.S., 805 N.E.2d 798 (Ind. 2004).
