Please join Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana and Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP for "The Trail to a Successful Motion to Dismiss," from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 6. This program will focus on how to draft and file a successful motion to dismiss. Trial Rules 12(B), 12(C) and 12(E) will be discussed along with important opinions from the Indiana Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court, including Trail v. Boys & Girls Clubs of N.W. Ind., 845 N.E.2d 130 (Ind. 2006).
