Stetson Wins 11th Annual Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition

    GULFPORT, FL, October 25, 2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Stetson University College of Law students Jordan Koziol, Logan Manderscheid and Tyler Troyer won the 11th Annual Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, on Oct. 22. The team argued in front of two federal circuit court judges and a state supreme court justice.

A total of 30 teams from around the country travelled to Atlanta to compete in the 11th Annual Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition. Stetson sent two teams to the competition. A second Stetson team of Kathryn Bonti, Anne Boyle and Joseph Kemmerling were quarterfinalists in the competition.

Stetson Moot Court Director Professor Brooke Bowman and Jason Lambert B.B.A. ’02, J.D. ’12 co-coached the teams.

The students argued two issues: whether a police officer’s use of a taser gun in dart mode was excessive force, and whether a police officer may search and seize a cell phone, without a warrant, under the Fourth Amendment.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
