Mellowitz v. Ball State University

Docket number

Upheld law prohibiting class actions against postsecondary educational institutions for contract or unjust enrichment claims to recover losses stemming from COVID-19 because it does not violate the constitutional separation of powers due to its limited scope, is not an unconstitutional taking because plaintiff has no property right to sue on behalf of others, and because law does not unconstitutionally impair student’s contract with university because plaintiff may pursue claims individually
