Fifty-year old professional male was awarded an eight-figure damage amount in the trial court and the matter was mediated and settled after an Indiana Court of Appeals decision affirming the verdict but before a Petition to Transfer to the Indiana Supreme Court was ruled on. Part of the mediation process involved discussion of the percentages of transfer petitions granted, the number granted which included issues of failure to give instructions and the number of cases involving eight-figure verdicts in which transfer was granted.
