Judge declines to strike testimony

FORT WAYNE — The judge in the reckless homicide and drunken driving trial of an Indianapolis police officer has ruled that police emails with daily summaries of the proceedings didn’t reveal anything unduly prejudicial against the defense.

Allen County Judge John Surbeck declined Tuesday to strike the testimony of a police captain who had read the emails before being called as a witness in the trial of David Bisard.

Surbeck also denied a request for a directed verdict by defense attorney John Kautzman after he argued the state failed to prove its case against Bisard.
