Prof. Joel Schumm to Argue Two More Cases Before the Indiana Supreme Court
Prof. Schumm has two up-coming oral arguments before the Indiana Supreme Court. On January 30, the court will hear Richard Brown v. State in Bloomington. Schumm will represent Mr. Brown and Deputy Attorney General Kathryn Stein will represent the State of Indiana.
On February 22, he will again participate, this time in John Grier v. State at the State House in Indianapolis. Schumm will argue for Mr. Grier and Michael Worden will represent the State. This case involved a traffic stop, during which a police officer applied pressure to Grierís neck to prevent him from swallowing a baggie. In proceedings on a charge of possession of cocaine, the Marion Superior Court denied Grierís motion to suppress the baggie and its contents. The Court of Appeals affirmed. John Grier v. State, 855 N.E.2d 1043 (Ind. Ct. App. 2006). Grier has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
Prof. Schumm also he argued Alexander Anglemyer v. State on September 7, 2006.
