Mo Court Of Appeals Holding Session At Mo West This Week

Once again this week the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, will be convening at Missouri Western State UNiversity in St. Joseph.

A panel consisting of Presiding Judge Lisa White Hardwick, Judge Thomas Chapman, and Judge Janet Sutton will hear oral arguments in four cases beginning at 9:30 A.M. wednesday, October 19 in the Kemper Recital Hall, inside Leah Spratt Hall.

After the oral arguments, the judges will take time to discuss the court system and take general questions from the audience.

The court regularly convenes in Kansas City, however, for more than 20 years, they have held sessions in several of the 45 counties in the court’s jurisdiction. The court convenes oral arguments outside of Kansas City to give individuals an opportunity to observe a part of the judicial system they normally do not see and to familiarize those attending with the court’s role in the judicial system.

The court has posted a summary of the cases to be heard as a PDF on their website.
