The Daily Record
The Nebraska Supreme Court will hold oral arguments for the first time in Scottsbluff in conjunction with Law Day.
Justices will hold two arguments at Scottsbluff High School the morning of April 29 as part of its continuing effort to raise awareness of court processes and the value of civics education.
The court recently visited the Creighton University School of Law and Boys Town High School as part of those outreach efforts.
“The justices on the Supreme Court recognize that our laws are complex and can be difficult to understand,” Chief Justice Mike Heavican said in a release. “We want the students to understand how the court system works to ensure that justice is served.”
The sessions are open to the public. The court will hear State v. Paulsen and State v. Cosey.
