Court to Hear Cases at Ole Miss

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Court of Appeals heads to the campus of the University of Mississippi in April to hear 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 will answer questions from Ole Miss students after the oral arguments but will not talk about the cases that are argued.

The cases are among dozens the Appeals Court will consider during its March-April term. Decisions are expected later.

Teams of law students from the Ole Miss’ Criminal Appeals Clinic will represent the defendants. The Mississippi attorney general’s office represents the state.
