That's a company that did $42 million worth of work for the Vigo County School Corporation.

A Marion County judge ruled against dismissing the charges against Tanoos, so he filed an appeal in the court of appeals.

Online records show both sides have fully presented their cases to court.

Since there will be no oral arguments before the court, the judges could give their decision on the matter at any time.

We will let you know when the court makes its ruling.
