An appeal pending before the Indiana Supreme Court involves the first known lawsuit based on the designation of a supervisor as a "workplace bully."

In the case, filed initially in the Marion (Indiana) Superior Court, Dr. Daniel H. Raess was accused -- and found liable by a jury -- of being a "workplace bully." Making the accusation was Joseph E. Doescher, who had assisted Raess in the operating room during open-heart surgery.

The Court of Appeals of Indiana reversed that jury verdict, sending the case back for further proceedings after determining that the lower court committed an error by allowing a witness to label Raess a "workplace bully." Doescher appealed.
