In her first State of Judiciary speech, Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush on Wednesday said the judiciary is “currently working on the development of a business court model focused on complex commercial litigation.
The Indiana Supreme Court has been tasked with deciding which county court will hear a lawsuit filed by the Camp Tecumseh youth camp that seeks to stop a farmer from raising more than 9,000 hogs on nearby land.
The court's annual report says the justices were asked to review 995 cases. Eighty of those cases made it to oral arguments. The justices read thousands of pages of briefs before deciding which cases to hear.
