About this Event
Tenants of a commercial building and their insurers sued U.S. Automatic Sprinkler Corp. for damages caused by a broken sprinkler system. Automatic Sprinkler had a maintenance contract with one of the tenants, Sycamore Springs Surgical Center. Automatic Sprinkler moved for summary judgment against all the plaintiffs, which the Marion Superior Court denied. On interlocutory appeal, the Court of Appeals affirmed in part and reversed in part. U.S. Automatic Sprinkler Corp. v. Erie Insurance Exchange, 185 N.E.3d 445 (Ind. Ct. App. 2022), vacated. The Indiana Supreme Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
