The Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, will convene court at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville on Monday March 13th.
A three-judge panel consisting of Western District judges Victor Howard and Gary Witt and Missouri Supreme Court Judge Zel Fischer will hear oral arguments in four cases in the J.W. Jones Student Union on the Northwest Missouri State University campus beginning at 1:00 p.m.
The cases are appeals from previously held trials in area circuit courts. The judges will hear attorneys argue whether the trials had errors, which should cause them to be retried, or the trial court’s judgment reversed. They will read written arguments before the court session and may interrupt the attorneys’ arguments with questions.
The three judges will remain after the court session to discuss the court system and generally explain proceedings.
