SAN DIEGO—Administrative Presiding Justice Judith McConnell today announced that the Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division One, will hold a special Oral Argument session at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, November 7, 2013, at the Brawley Union High School.

This outreach program is one of many in the Fourth Appellate District to expand students’ understanding of the appellate court process. The students will view experienced attorneys argue their cases and respond to inquiries before the court. After the session concludes, the justices and counsel will discuss the appellate process with students and will answer questions. The cases to be argued are:

• People v. White (D063369); and
• City of Calexico v. Calexico Personnel Commission (D063152).

The program is the result of a collaborative effort between the court and Brawley Union High School and is open to the public. The special session will be held in the auditorium of the high school located at 480 N. Imperial Ave., Brawley, CA 92227.
