The Indiana Supreme Court will visit Martin University in Indianapolis Friday to hear arguments in a case over whether a man driving a scooter could be convicted of operating a “motor vehicle” while his driving privileges were suspended.
The justices will hear Michael J. Lock v. State of Indiana, No. 35S04-1110-CR-62, which comes from Huntington Circuit Court. Michael Lock was stopped while driving a Yamaha Zuma and convicted of driving while his privileges were suspended. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed, finding the state didn’t prove the scooter was a motor vehicle as defined in Indiana Code sections 9-13-2-105 and 109.
Arguments are open to the public and begin at 9:30 a.m. in Martin University Gathertorium, 2171 N. Avondale Place.
