SCOTUS to hear arguments in State Public Defender appeal on Tuesday!

ASPD Andy Hinkel will argue Mitchell v. Wisconsin to the United States Supreme Court on Tuesday.  The issue is whether a statute authorizing a blood draw from an unconscious motorist provides an exception to the Fourth Amendment warrant requirement. Click here to read SCOTUSblog’s preview of the case. It points out that 29 states have laws similar to Wisconsin’s, so the court’s decision in this case will indeed have nationwide impact. If you want to listen to an audio recording of the argument or read a transcript of it, both will be available later this week here. Go, Andy! The SPD (and many amicus parties) are rooting for you and your client!!
