    En Blanc Hearing

    With September 26th approaching quickly, I thought I would add a new thread to find information directly related to that hearing.

    Luke Berg has filed notice that he will be giving oral arguments on behalf of the state. Here is his profile.

    As one would guess, Laura Nirider has also find that she will be giving oral arguments on behalf of Brendan. Here is her profile.

    IDK~~it took several months before the 3 circuit judges made their decision, so I don't see it happening very quickly.

    I hope they speed things up after the hearing. Brendan needs to be home by Christmas.

    I feel a sense of deja vu...makes me wonder if I posted that around this time last year.

    Christmas is only around 3 mnths. away. I wonder if the en banc hearing in Brendan's favor if they will then finally release him from prison? I hope so.

    It's only about 8 days before the en banc hearing. Does anyone know if we will be able to listen to it like the previous one?

    Karinna, I don't think we get to listen to it live, but the audio is released right after. I will keep my eye out out though, and if I find that it's live I will post a link. From what I have read recently, I think both sides have been given 30 minutes to argue/answer questions.

    Thanks for your reply missy. It will be interesting to listen to and see how the state spins it this time.

    BRENDAN DASSEY CASE LIKELY BOUND FOR SUPREME COURT

    “I think the tipped its hand to where this is going,” Leonard said. “They are going to ask attorneys questions [that are] less about the facts of the case, and more about the legal arguments behind the appellate process and why they’re there.”

    Brendan Dassey faces crucial hearing Tuesday before federal appeals court
    Regardless of which way the Seventh Circuit rules, an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is virtually certain, said Raymond Dall’Osto, a Milwaukee attorney with a specialty in criminal defense.

    But he said it would be unusual for the nation’s highest court to take the Dassey case.

    “Those (petitions for review) are rarely granted,” he said.

    Dall’Osto said he is hoping that Dassey will prevail before the Seventh Circuit.

    “If (the judges) follow the law as applied in this case … the conventional wisdom would be affirmation,” he said.

    When oral arguments are available to listen too, I believe it can be found here:

    http://media.ca7.uscourts.gov/oralArguments/oar.jsp

    The year is : 16
    the number is: 3397

    There is someone on reddit that is there and giving updates, as of about 20 minutes ago, he said that 1 judge had dropped out, leaving only 7 judges now (there was 8, and Brendan would have needed 4 to rule in his favour, with 7, 4 would still be the majority). They were also moving to a larger room, lots of spectators there to listen, all major players were already in the courtroom.
