OF THE SUPREME COURT
The decedent died in a traffic accident involving a U-Haul truck. Her
estate and survivors brought suit against U-Haul and others. The Marion Superior
Court held that punitive damages could not be recovered in a wrongful death
action but could be recovered in a loss of consortium action. The
Court of Appeals reversed in part and affirmed in part, holding that punitive
damages could be recovered in both actions, and that loss of consortium damages
may continue after the date of the decedent's death. See Durham v.
U-Haul Int'l, 722 N.E.2d 355 (Ind. Ct. App. 2000).
U-Haul seeks transfer.
