Indiana Court of appeals Oral Arguments on Campus Tuesday
The Indiana Court of Appeals heard oral arguments on campus Tuesday regarding the criminal case of Duane T. Lee vs. State of Indiana. The audience consisted of local lawyers and law makers, DePauw students, faculty, and staff. The arguments were heard before a panel of three Indiana judges including DePauw alumnus Terry Crone ’74. The arguments focused on the use of a specific DNA sample as evidence against Duane Lee in his initial trial and the judges were to make a ruling in a private discussion. A question and answer session followed the proceedings, allowing students and faculty members the opportunity to inquire about the court of appeals process, case loads and overall mission. DePauw has hosted oral arguments before the Indiana Court of Appeals seven times in the last eight years and plans to contribute this tradition during the 2012-2013 school year.
