Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Justice Loretta H. Rush and U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robyn L. Moberly of the Southern District of Indiana will join three others Friday in presiding over the final round of Indiana University Maurer School of Law’s annual Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition.

Also joining the two are Judge Adalberto Jordan of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, IU Maurer Dean Austen L. Parrish, and Senior Judge S. Jay Plager of the Federal Circuit. Plager is also a former dean at IU Maurer School of Law.

The panel will hear arguments in a civil forfeiture action that addresses two issues: whether the U.S. Constitution’s Excessive Fines Clause permits the government to seize all the assets of the fictional Gem City Art Museum as a penalty for trafficking in Nazi-looted artwork; and whether reporters’ use of Twitter during the trial violated the museum’s due process rights.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with the final round beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Room 123 of the law school. The program is open to the public and will be followed by a reception on the third floor.
