AILA Indiana Chapter Files Amicus Brief in Case Involving Undocumented Worker’s Injury

AILA's Indiana Chapter submitted an amicus brief with the Supreme Court of Indiana, arguing that the Court of Appeals of Indiana's opinion, which established a new standard declaring that an immigrant's status must be considered if the worker is at "any risk of deportation," should be reversed because it creates an unworkable evidentiary standard based on a misunderstanding of immigration law. Amici assert that the court should establish a bright line rule stating that evidence of immigration status is inadmissible in the calculation of foreign national workers' lost earning capacity.
