Posted: Monday, May 04, 2009
The Minnesota Supreme Court will convene at Buffalo High School, 877 Bison Blvd., Buffalo, MN, at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 6, 2009. Oral arguments will be followed by a question-and-answer session, lunch with students and Buffalo Rotarians and classroom visits.
The Court will hear oral arguments of a real case - State of Minnesota, Respondent vs. Meng Vang, Appellant (Case No. A08-588), which originated in Anoka County District Court. The Court partnered with the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) Civic Education Committee to arrange volunteer attorneys to visit classrooms at Buffalo High School in order to help prepare students and staff for the visit.
More than 800 Buffalo Area students will watch the oral arguments and participate in the question-and-answer session in the auditorium. The program will also be taped by QCTV (Quad Cities Television) to be used in future classes.
Media are welcome to attend all events. Please refer to the schedule below. Also attached is the "Cameras in the Courtroom" policy, which will be followed during oral arguments.
