High school students will fill the proverbial robes and literal seats of Michigan Supreme Court justices for a mock trial at the Hall of Justice on June 29.
Twenty students will participate by the roles of the justices and attorneys to hear Patterson v. Nichols and Sutton, an actual MSC case in which the plaintiff sued when a 911 operator disregarded a five-year old boy’s calls for help when his mother suffered a heart attack. The mother died.
The event is open to the public and begins at 11 am. Pie and punch will be served.*
