As a celebratory event during its Centennial Year, a panel from the Georgia Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in three cases March 27 on campus at Georgia State's College of Law.
A standing-room-only crowd of law students and interested observers listened to two hours of arguments in the Student Center Ballroom. Court of Appeals Chief Judge John H. Ruffin Jr., Presiding Judge J.D. Smith and Judge Herbert E. Phipps heard two criminal cases and one civil case during the arguments on campus.
"We're very pleased the panel from the Court of Appeals was able to join us as part of their Centennial Year of celebration," said Dean Steve Kaminshine. "And we are glad to have the opportunity to host the Court in a special setting for oral arguments.”
