The Tennessee Court of Appeals will visit the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin this week to hold oral arguments in front of a live audience of students and guests.
“Bringing the courtroom to the students is a wonderful way to involve them in the judicial process,” said Judge Steven Stafford. “It’s also important for us, as judges, to get out into the community and provide this valuable teaching tool. We thoroughly enjoy interacting with the public in these settings.”
Students and faculty are invited to sit in and listen to oral arguments on Tuesday, November 15 at Watkins Auditorium. Judge Stafford, Judge Carma McGee and Judge Jeffrey Usman will comprise the three-judge panel. They will hear the following cases:
9:30 a.m. – State of Tennessee ex. rel. Alicia Janelle Collins v. Vikramjeet Sethi Singh
10:30 a.m. – Karen Mathes v. N.J. Ford Funeral Home Inc. et. al.
11:30 a.m. – Madeline Luckett Nolan v. Gregory Stewart Nolan
Tuesday’s Oral Arguments will not be livestreamed. Instead, they will be recorded in their entirety and posted to the AOC website: tncourts.gov at a later date.
