On February 10, Kevin Munn ’14 argued for the defendant in State v. Terrell Pond before an en banc panel of seven justices at the Connecticut Supreme Court. Munn appeared under the supervision of Clinical Professor of Law Timothy Everett ’84. At trial, the defendant was acquitted of robbery in the second degree but convicted of conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery. He appealed. In 2012, Kate MacLeman ’12 presented the defendant’s argument in the Appellate Court and won a new trial for the defendant when the Court credited a challenge to the trial court’s jury instruction on the intent element necessary to prove conspiracy. When the state appealed to the Supreme Court, Munn, Bryce Petruccelli ’13 and Everett worked together to write the brief. Students in this year’s Appellate Clinic, faculty and outside attorneys participated in mootings to prepare Munn for oral argument. All told, eight clinic students filed appearances and contributed to the writing of the defendant’s appellate briefs in the two courts.
