ANKENY, Iowa (September 22, 2016) - Iowa Supreme Court Justice Mark S. Cady met with students from Ankeny Centennial High School to discuss the Iowa judicial system and the role of the courts in Iowa.
In addition to the visit with students, Ankeny Centennial High School hosted a special supreme court session which was open to the public. During the special session, the court heard oral arguments in one case. A public reception with the justices followed the proceedings. The Polk County Bar Association is sponsoring the reception.
The Iowa Supreme Court heard lawyers argue the case:
State of Iowa v. Troy Richard Brooks, case no. 15-0101, from Polk County District Court
Under the so-called "exclusionary rule," evidence that is obtained in violation of a defendant's constitutional right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure cannot be used against the defendant in criminal proceedings. In this case, defendant Brooks argues that the Iowa Constitution requires the court to apply the exclusionary rule to improperly seized evidence during probation revocation proceedings. Brooks seeks to overturn a previous Iowa Supreme Court opinion that held the exclusionary rule does not apply to probation revocation proceedings.
