Ind. Law - Daniel Schuetz, public defender and attorney with Franklin law firm, dies at 38

The Franklin Daily Journal has a brief story here. Some quotes:

An attorney with a Franklin law firm died over the weekend died of a heart attack, according to Bartholomew County Coroner Larry Fisher.

Daniel Schuetz, 38, collapsed late Saturday morning while exercising at a fitness center in Columbus. Efforts to revive the attorney at the fitness center were unsuccessful. Schuetz was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead an hour after his collapse.

Schuetz was an attorney with the Eggers Woods law firm. * * *

While the attorney joined the Eggers Woods law firm in Franklin a few years ago, [Columbus attorney R. Kent Witte] said the Schuetz family, which includes young daughters, Gretta and Gabby, lived in Columbus.

Schuetz has served as a public defender in Bartholomew County for more than six years.

Funeral services are pending through Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home in Columbus.

Prof. Joel Schumm recalls a 2010 Supreme Court opinion in a termination case where he co-counseled with Mr. Schuetz, I.B. v. DCS.
