About this Event
In 2016, the City of Marion filed a complaint in Grant Superior Court against parties involved in a stalled redevelopment project partially funded by a municipal bond. Discovery uncovered allegations of misuse of bond funds by the mayor who left office the previous year. In 2017, the City amended its complaint to add London Witte Group, LLC (LWG), an accounting and financial services firm employed by the previous mayor's administration, and the mayor's brother as defendants. The trial court granted summary judgment in LWG's favor on two of the three claims against it. The Court of Appeals affirmed in part and reversed in part, finding all of the claims against LWG time-barred. City of Marion v. London Witte Group, LLC, 147 N.E.3d 362 (Ind. Ct. App. 2020), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted transfer and accepted jurisdiction over the appeal.
