The Indiana Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Putnam County Sheriff v. Price
Summary of the case:  An injured motorist sued the sheriff for negligently failing to warn motorists of a known hazard on a county highway, and when the sheriff argued that he had no such duty and moved to dismiss, the trial court denied the motion to dismiss. In this interlocutory appeal, the Court of Appeals affirmed. Putnam County Sheriff v. Price, 930 N.E.2d 669 (Ind. 2010), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
