Colorado Supreme Court to hear arguments at Chatfield High School on May 3, 2016
April 26, 2016 /
DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two cases on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, at Chatfield High School in Littleton before an audience of students. The public also is invited to attend. The visit is part of the Colorado Judicial Branch’s Courts in the Community, the outreach program the Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals initiated on Law Day (May 1), 1986. The Courts in the Community program was developed to give Colorado high school students firsthand experience in how the Colorado judicial system works and illustrate how disputes are resolved in a democratic society. These are not mock proceedings. The court will hear arguments in actual cases from which it will issue opinions. The court generally issues opinions within a few months of the arguments. All seven justices hear cases together. They are Chief Justice Nancy E. Rice and Justices Nathan B. Coats, Allison H. Eid, Monica M. Márquez, Brian D. Boatright, William W. Hood III and Richard L. Gabriel.
