Add to calendar

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to the Courtroom will be limited to the Justices, limited Court personnel, and no more than two attorneys per arguing party.  (Litigants and other interested parties are invited to view the argument by live webcast outside the Courtroom or remotely.)

In separate cases, Tracy Ladra and Chad Staat sued the State and INDOT after sustaining injuries when their vehicles hydroplaned on interstates. The State and INDOT sought summary judgment, arguing they had weather-related immunity under the Indiana Tort Claims Act. The Porter Superior Court granted summary judgment to the State in Ladra, and the Dearborn Superior Court granted summary judgment to INDOT in Staat. A divided panel of the Court of Appeals affirmed the grant of weather-immunity summary judgment to the State in Ladra. Ladra v. State, 162 N.E.3d 1161 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. In Staat, the same appellate panel reversed the grant of weather-immunity summary judgment and remanded. Staat v. INDOT, 164 N.E.3d 135 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. The Indiana Supreme Court has granted petitions to transfer and assumed jurisdiction over both cases.
