Colin E. Flora, Practitioner's Guide to the Voluntary Payment Doctrine, 37 S. Ill. U. L.J. 91 (2012).

In the two centuries since its inception, the voluntary payment doctrine has become a powerful instrument for defendants to resist the repayment of money not rightfully owed. This Article examines the origins, evolution, modern application, and approaches to defeat the application of the doctrine. The Article aspires to provide practitioners with the tools necessary to navigate their clients’ cases through the treacherous waters of the voluntary payment doctrine by seeing how the doctrine is applied throughout the many American jurisdictions, the underlying rationales, and the ways that litigants have been able to defeat its application. The Article also includes tables to act as reference points for busy practitioners.

Indianapolis Civil Litigation Attorney
I was born and raised on a small family farm as the son of two high school math teachers. I had the great fortune of growing up next door to my grandparents. My grandfather taught me the meaning and rewards of a hard day's work. I used those lessons to excel both academically and personally resulting in the great honor of being named in the inaugural class of Indiana University’s Herbert Presidential Scholars. While in undergrad, I was fortunate enough to be granted the opportunity to work as a research assistant for Professor David C.W. Parker which gave me the opportunity to develop my research skills, co-author an academic paper, and present that paper at the 2007 Annual Meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association. After completing my undergraduate degree a year early, I enrolled in Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law where I graduated with honors. While in law school I gained experience at the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office and at Cohen & Malad, LLP. I now have the great pleasure of working with one of the finest attorneys I have had the pleasure of knowing in Eric Pavlack as I continue to enjoy the rewards of a hard day’s work.
