A panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will be holding an official session of the Court on Tuesday, April 3 at the OSU Moritz College of Law.
Judges Boyce Martin, R. Guy Cole and Jeff Sutton '90 will hear a complicated federal habeas case in which an Ohio death row prisoner has brought a series of constitutional challenges to the Ohio state court proceedings that resulted in his conviction and death sentence for a murder committed in Summit County, Ohio in the mid-1990s.
The argument will take place at 2 p.m. and members of the public can RSVP to Laura Landy Carr at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, March 29 to reserve seats. Judicial clerks working for Judges Cole, Martin, and Sutton will offer a panel discussion for students after the judges hear arguments.
