Ind. Courts - 7th Circuit holding oral arguments today at IU-Mauer Law School in Bloomington

See the announcement here. Some quotes:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit will hear oral arguments in three cases from noon to 2:00 in the Moot Court Room.

Cloe v. City of Indianapolis No. 12-1713

Plaintiff-appellant Cloe contends the district court erred by granting summary judgment for her employer, the City of Indianapolis, on her Americans with Disabilities Act claims for (a) failing to accommodate disabilities resulting from multiple sclerosis, and (b) discriminating and retaliating against her in terminating her employment.

Jordans v. Binns & US Xpress No. 11-2134

Plaintiff-appellant Jordan was severely injured when her motorcycle collided with a semi operated by defendant Binns for his employer. A jury found the defendants not liable for the accident. Plaintiff seeks a new trial, arguing that the trial court erroneously admitted hearsay evidence from statements made at the scene of the accident and in an insurance investigation report.

U.S. v. Westmoreland No. 10, 3961

Defendant-appellant Westmoreland was convicted on drug, murder, and conspiracy charges. He contends the trial court erred by denying his motion for a new trial based on new evidence that a government agent had an affair with his wife during the investigation, by waiting eight years to deny the motion for a new trial, and by refusing to appoint counsel to assist him.

The announcement also includes links to the briefs in the three cases.
