Appeals Court to hold hearings at MSU

By Jack Elliot Jr./The Associated Press

JACKSON — The state Court of Appeals hits the road in November, heading to Mississippi State University on Nov. 15 to hold oral arguments in two cases.

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 answers questions from students after the oral arguments, but will not talk about the cases which are argued.

The two cases being heard at MSU in Starkville are among dozens the Appeals Court will take up during its November-December term.
