Renner sued Shepard-Bazant after an auto accident and received a default judgment on liability. After a bench trial on damages, the Lake Superior Court awarded Renner $132,000 and denied her motion to correct error in which she requested the damages award be increased. The Court of Appeals reversed and remanded for a retrial on damages, finding that the trial court improperly considered Renner’s two prior concussions as separate incidents and there was insufficient proof that Renner failed to mitigate her damages. Renner v. Shepard-Bazant, 159 N.E.3d 1 (Ind. Ct. App. 2020), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the case.
