Today's oral arguments

The Nevada Supreme Court will hear oral argument today in several criminal cases:

9:00 a.m. - Ramos v. State - I do not know the issues presented in this case

10:30 a.m. - Vontobel v. State - This is an appeal in a case with a conviction for sexual assault. The primary issue involves the fact that during deliberations one of the jurors discussed the case with a police officer neighbor. Defense counsel requested a full hearing but was granted only a limited inquiry into the issue.

11:00 a.m. - Murphy v. State - I do not know the issues presented in this case

11:30 a.m. - Tabish v. State - I do not know the issues presented in this case

I remain hopeful that someday in the future the Nevada Supreme Court will post electronic copies of the briefs on its website so that we can know the issues that the Court is considering.
