Commemorating Terry v. Ohio: a Milestone in the History of African-American Lawyers

NEW TIME: 1:30 p.m.

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law hosts a dedication of a new Ohio historical plaque commemorating the landmark Supreme Court case Terry v. Ohio, which continues to govern the disputed legal terrain of police-citizen encounters. The Terry case was litigated by two prominent Cleveland attorneys, defense lawyer Louis Stokes and prosecutor Reuben Payne, both 1953 graduates of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. These two African-American lawyers argued the case in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, on appeal in the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals, and then in the United States Supreme Court. 

The Supreme Court oral argument in Terry on December 12, 1967, was a milestone in American legal history. It was the first time two African-American lawyers argued a case before an African-American justice, Thurgood Marshall, who had assumed the bench in October 1967. The historical plaque commemorates this important event in Cleveland and American history.

The event will be held in the Moot Court Room at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, with a reception to follow.

Speakers include:

The Honorable C. Ellen Connally, retired judge of the Cleveland Municipal Court, former president of the Cuyahoga County Council.

The Honorable Stuart A. Friedman, Judge, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. Judge Friedman’s father, Judge Bernard Friedman, presided in Terry case in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

Brett Hammond, assistant prosecutor, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. Mr. Hammond’s grandfather, the Honorable Louis Stokes, represented the defendants in Terry v. Ohio from the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court to the United States Supreme Court.

Timothy McGinty, former Cuyahoga County Prosecutor and former Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court judge.
