Rex Sharp of Gunderson Sharp, LLP, is the counsel of record for Brandon W. Owens, the defendant in a case that was accepted by the Supreme Court in April. The case, known as Dart Cherokee vs. Owens, examines what information a defendant looking to have his case transferred from a state court to a federal court must provide.

Sharp is slated to make oral arguments before the high court Oct. 7 — considered one of the highest honors in the legal profession.

Sharp is a well-known locally for his representation of oil and gas, beef and trucking industry clients. He is also the attorney representing former Prairie Village City Councilor David Morrison in his appeal to be reseated after being ousted by Johnson County Judge David Hauber.
