Indiana Court of Appeals Invites Public to April 15 Hearing on DePauw's Campus

April 8, 2019

On Monday, April 15, DePauw University students, faculty and staff, and those in Putnam County community will again have an opportunity to see first hand the workings of the justice system. As it has each spring for more than a decade, the Indiana Court of Appeals will come to campus of DePauw and will hold a session which the public is invited to attend.

The proceedings will begin at 2:20 p.m. in the Inn at DePauw's Social Center. A three-judge Court of Appeals panel will hear oral arguments in the case of Cornell K. Montgomery Jr. vs. the State of Indiana.

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. Normal courtroom rules of decorum will apply.

It marks the fourteenth time in the last 15 years that the Court of Appeals has come to DePauw in visits hosted by the department of political science. The Court of Appeals hears several oral arguments each year at locations around the state to enable citizens to learn about the judicial branch.

The three-judge panel conducting the oral arguments will consist of 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 Edward W. Najam Jr.
