Time: 2:30 pm
Location: Wynne Courtroom
The Indiana Court of Appeals will hold oral argument in the Wynne Courtroom. The arguments are open to the public and the entire law school community. The judges will take questions from the audience after each argument.
Monday, March 31 at 2:30 p.m. State v. Pollard
A panel of Judge Ezra H. Friedlander, Judge Margret G. Robb, and Judge Paul D. Mathias will hear the case on appeal from Blackford Superior Court. The Court is asked to decide whether the trial court erred in finding that a statute limiting convicted sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school property, a youth program center, or a public park was an ex post facto law as it applied to Mr. Pollards 20-year residency and was therefore unconstitutional in his case. Arguing for the appellant, the State of Indiana, will be Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Ploughe. Chris Teagle of the Teagle Law Firm in Muncie will argue for Mr. Pollard. http://www.in.gov/judiciary/press/2008/0317.html
