Indiana Court of Appeals Invites Campus & Public to April 9 Session

April 4, 2018

East College shade xzIn what has become an annual tradition, the Indiana Court of Appeals will come to campus of DePauw University and will hold oral arguments in a case.  The presentations, which take place Monday, April 9, at 10:20 a.m. in the Inn at DePauw's Social Center, are open to the public.

A three-judge panel will hear arguments in the case of Scott Randall v. State of Indiana (49A02-1708-CR-1779), which is summarized here.

It marks the 13th time in the last 14 years that the Court of Appeals has come to DePauw. Normal courtroom rules of decorum will apply. At the conclusion of the oral arguments, the judges plan to answer questions from the audience, although they must refrain from discussing the particular case being considered.

The three-judge panel conducting the oral arguments will comprise Judges Margret G. Robb, the first woman to serve as Chief Judge of the Indiana Court of Appeals; Terry A. Crone. a 1974 graduate of DePauw; and Robert Altice, Jr.

The Court of Appeals hears several oral arguments each year at locations around the state to enable citizens to learn about the judicial branch. DePauw's department of political science is again hosting the event.
