JUDGE IN DELPHI MURDER CASE ASKS SUPREME COURT TO REJECT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE HER
Judge Fran Gull, facing a challenge at the Indiana Supreme Court over her handling of the murder trial of Richard Allen, responded Monday by saying attorneys taken off the Delphi case were coming at her through the improper channels.
Gull’s attorneys argued in a filing Monday that Allen could appeal decisions made in her courtroom. But she contended that his attempt to go to the Supreme Court with a petition for a writ of mandamus to remove her from the case and reinstate his initial defense team in the high-profile case was “a short cut” that the justices should toss.
Even then, Gull’s attorneys argued in a filing Monday, that the special judge assigned to the trial wasn’t backing down from her decision that Allen’s initial court-appointed attorneys shouldn’t be on the case – whether they withdrew on their own or they were removed.
