Ind. Decisions - Successful pro se plaintiff in Carmel traffic ticket suit files in federal court

The ILB has had a number of entries on the Dec. 11, 2015 Court of Appeals opinion in Jason J. Maraman v. City of Carmel, Indiana, where a pro se appellant suceeded in his argument that the Carmel city ordinance under which he (Maraman) was ticketed was void.

In April of this year, the Supreme Court declined transfer.

In this post from Jan. 12, 2016, the ILB quotes an IBJ story headed "Carmel faces federal class action lawsuit over traffic law," and includes a copy of the federal complaint. The last part of this IndyStar story from Jan. 14th also talks of the federal class action lawsuit, filed by attorney Ed Bielski.

So it was with interest that the ILB this weekend came upon a pro se action filed June 6th in federal court by the same pro se plaintiff who won the similar case in state court. Here is a copy of the 6-page complaint.
