Carol Bahney filed a complaint against the University of Notre Dame after she fell on a riser while attending a basketball game. The jury found Bahney primarily at fault for the accident. The Saint Joseph Superior Court set aside the judgment for the University on Bahney’s motion alleging the University violated the discovery rules by, among other things, failing to disclose that a University witness’s testimony would be different at trial than it was during her deposition. A majority of the Court of Appeals reversed, concluding the discovery issues were insufficient to warrant a new trial. Univ. of Notre Dame v. Bahney, 158 N.E.3d 809 (Ind. Ct. App. 2020), trans. pending. Bahney has petitioned this Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
