Marianna spoke on The Problems with Electing Judges in Ohio at the
Isaac M. Wise Temple. She wrote her monthly Israelite column on State v.
Brown, a case in which the Ohio Supreme Court departed from its usual
custom in following the U.S. Supreme Court’s Fourth Amendment jurisprudence
and instead held that a full custodial arrest for the minor misdemeanor of
jaywalking violates the Ohio Constitution’s prohibition against unreasonable
searches and seizures. Marianna served as a panelist on a Cincinnati Bar Association
CLE ethics program.
