Court of Appeals To Hear Cases At Mississippi State
The Mississippi Court of Appeals is heading to the campus of Mississippi State University on Wednesday to hear oral arguments in two cases at the Hunter Henry Center in Starkville.
The Appeals Court periodically schedules oral arguments on college campuses - and occasionally at other locations - as a teaching tool for students. It is known as the "Court on the Road" program. A panel of three Appeals Court judges will answer questions from Mississippi State University students after the oral arguments but won't talk about the cases that were argued.
The cases are among dozens the Appeals Court will consider during its November-December term. Decisions are expected later.
Students from the University of Mississippi School of Law will argue for the defendants. The Mississippi attorney general's office will argue for the state.
