JUNE 2001 SITTING

OF THE SUPREME COURT



Tuesday, June 19

9:30 a.m.         Nicholas S. King et. al. v. Northeast Security Inc, and
         Metropolitan School District of Washington Township

    King, a student at North Central High School, was allegedly assaulted by other students in a school parking lot. The Marion Superior Court entered summary judgment in favor of the school and the firm that provided certain security services on the campus. The Court of Appeals reversed the summary judgment for the school, but affirmed the summary judgment for the security firm. See King v. Northeast Security, Inc., 732 N.E.2d 824 (Ind. Ct. App. 2000). The order setting the case for argument invited argument on the school’s motion for summary judgment. Attorney for King: C. Dennis Wegner. Attorney for Northeast Security: Andrew Wirick. Attorney for Washington Township: David Mattingly.


Wednesday, June 27

9:30 a.m.     Thomas G. Allen, et al. v. Great American Reserve Insurance Company and Glenn H. Guffey


         Insurance subagents allege that they misrepresented the terms of annuities to customers in reliance on misrepresentations by the insurance agent who trained them. The subagents sued the agent and the insurance company, and the Hamilton Circuit Court granted partial summary judgment to the agent and the company. The Court of Appeals affirmed in part, holding that the subagents could not have reasonably relied on the agent’s misrepresentations. See Allen v. Great American Reserve Inc. Co., 739 N.E.2d 1080 (Ind. Ct. App. 2000). The subagents seek transfer. Attorney for Allen, et. al.: George Plews. Attorney for Great American Reserve Insurance: Joseph Yeager. Attorney for Guffey: Patricia McCrory.
