Ind. Courts - Bei Bei Shuai Appeal set for Dec. 13th; Briefs posted by ILB

Updating a long list of ILB entries on Bei Bei Shuai, the suicidal woman changed with feticide, the Court of Appeals will hear oral argument in Bei Bei Shuai v State on 1:30 pm, Tuesday, Dec. 13, in the Supreme Courtroom and it will be webcast. The panel is Judges Najam, Riley and May.

The appeals have been consolidated, meaning that the original bond denial appeal, and the appeal filed in October which, according to the Indy Star story at the time, seeks dismissal of the charges "on several grounds, including that attempting suicide is not a crime in Indiana and the state may not create a new crime just for pregnant women," will now be heard on Dec. 13th.

There is national interest in this case and a number of amicus briefs have been filed on behalf of Ms. Shuai. Happily, the ILB has been able to acquire the briefs of the parties and of the amici curiae, and is posting them here:
