Oral arguments will be heard in Tarron v. Bowen Machine & Fabricating, Inc., (click here to read case) and in State of Arizona v. Shawn Patrick Lynch, (click here to read case) beginning at 10 a.m. in the Great Hall.
Each year, the Court visits the College of Law to hear cases; this is the first time Justice John Pelander, a former Chief Judge of the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division Two, who was appointed to the Supreme Court in September, has visited the College in that capacity.
Oral arguments are open to students, faculty, staff and the general public, and will be followed by a question-and-answer period. According to the Court's Dress Code Policy and Procedure, dress is business attire. No cut off or torn jeans, flip flops, shorts, halter tops, or jeans or pants hanging below the waist are allowed, skirts should be appropriate for business wear, and hats cannot be worn in the court room.
Bulky jackets, book bags, food and beverages, including bottled water, should be left outside the Great Hall, as should cell phones, laptops, pagers, cameras, radios, CDs and other electronic equipment, sharp items and weapons.
All students, faculty, staff and guests will go through security screening, which includes a metal detector, so allow enough time to enter the Great Hall before 10 a.m.
