Iowa Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in Clinton

March 17, 2016

Des Moines, March 17, 2016— On Thursday, April 14, the Iowa Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Clinton, Iowa. The proceeding will take place in the Clinton High School Auditorium, 817 8th Avenue South. The oral arguments are open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m.

The court will hear attorneys argue in the following case:

State of Iowa v. Mar'yo D. Lindsey, Jr.

The defendant seeks further review from the Iowa Supreme Court after the Iowa Court of Appeals affirmed his conviction for possession of a firearm as a felon, carrying weapons on school grounds, going armed with a dangerous weapon, and possession of a controlled substance. Appellant contends that after he was injured in a high school football game, school officials conducted an unreasonable search and seizure of his school-issued football equipment bag constituting an unreasonable search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment in violation of defendant's constitutional rights.

Attorneys' briefs for the case, the court of appeals decision, and a guide to oral arguments are posted on the Iowa Judicial Branch website at: /About_the_Courts/Supreme_Court/Offsite_Oral_Arguments_Clinton/index.asp .

A public reception with the supreme court justices will follow the oral arguments in the Clinton High School commons. The Clinton County Bar Association is sponsoring the reception.

Note to Editors: News media are invited to attend the oral arguments. Court rules apply regarding still camera, video camera, audio recording devices, and other electronic devices used during the oral arguments. Information on expanded media coverage is available on the Iowa Judicial Branch website.

The Iowa Court Rules regarding cameras and other electronic devices in courtrooms are available from the Iowa Legislature website (PDF).
