Power Rogers & Smith Ceremonial Courtroom, 10th Floor
 
The Court will hold a formal session and hear argument in the case of Sergeant Brown, who was convicted of aggravated assault for his alleged role in a bar altercation in Baumholder, Germany. In a pretrial motion, defense counsel sought to suppress any identification of SGT Brown by the victim, Ms. LW.  At trial, over defense counsel’s objection, Ms. LW identified SGT Brown in-person as her attacker. On appeal, SGT Brown argues, inter alia, the military judge abused his discretion by admitting evidence stemming from the photographic lineup conducted by the German authorities.  
 
Immediately after the hearing, the audience will be provided an opportunity to ask questions of the judges and counsel.  The hearing will be followed by a reception.
 
This special event is free and open to all Chicago-area law students. RSVP by January 24 to nationalsecuritylaw@luc.edu.
