A provision in his mother’s trust prevented Roger Rotert from inheriting outright upon his mother’s death if he was still married at the time of her death, instead putting his inheritance into a second trust managed by his sister, Connie Stiles. After his mother’s death, Rotert challenged the provision as an unenforceable restraint on marriage. The Jackson Circuit Court granted summary judgment to Stiles, finding the provision enforceable. In a split decision, the Court of Appeals reversed, holding that the provision was an impermissible restraint on marriage. Rotert v. Stiles, 159 N.E.3d 46 (Ind. Ct. App. 2020), trans. pending. Stiles has petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
