Arizona Supreme Court to Hear Arguments in Kingman
PHOENIX – The Arizona Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at Kingman High School on Nov. 16 as part of the Court’s oral arguments on the road community outreach program. The event in Kingman is open to the public with limited seating in the school’s auditorium. The Arizona Supreme Court held oral arguments in Lake Havasu in April of 2014, when the Court was still comprised of five justices. This will be the Court’s first visit to Mohave County with the new complement of seven justices.
Superior Court Presiding Judge Steven C. Moss said, “We look forward to the Arizona Supreme Court visiting Mohave County. It is a unique opportunity for students to witness oral arguments on cases pending before the court. During their visit we will share with the justices some of the innovations implemented the past few years at the Mohave County courts and they will tour the new Superior Courthouse in Kingman.
The courts in Mohave County are committed to providing due process and equal justice to all and look forward to visiting with the justices.” Kingman High School Principal Isaiah Ward said, “We are honored and excited to have the Arizona Supreme Court come to KHS. This is a great chance for our students and students from Mohave County to witness law and the workings of the Court firsthand.”
KHS has invited all other high schools in the county to bring students to watch the proceedings, which begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Hilda Aguilar Auditorium. There will be a 20-minute question and answer session following the oral arguments, where attendees will have a chance to ask general questions to the justices and their staff. Seniors taking civics classes will review the case backgrounds in advance.
All attendees will be required to go through a security check prior to admittance. The cases will be live streamed at azcourts.gov/AZSupremeCourt/LiveArchivedVideo
