Court of appeals session at law school

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit will hold a special session from 1-3:30 p.m. March 15 in the School of Law’s Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom in Anheuser-Busch Hall.

The public is invited to hear cases involving a civil rights action brought by a youth against church boarding institutions, a trademark dispute over graphics used in a video game, and a negligence case stemming from a father injuring his son with a lawnmower on church property.

The court periodically holds sessions in law schools as part of an educational program.

Hearing oral arguments will be judges Morris S. Arnold, Pasco M. Bowman and William Jay Riley.

After the session, the judges will be available to answer general procedural questions and give information about judicial clerkships.

To limit the amount of disturbances to the proceedings, visitors will be asked to enter and exit the courtroom only during breaks between each attorney’s oral argument.

Case briefs for the oral argument session will be on temporary reserve in the law school’s library under “Eighth Circuit Special Session.”
