Wyoming Supreme Court Goes on the Road

The Wyoming Supreme Court left Cheyenne and held oral argument at the Pinedale High School on April 27th, and the Jackson Hole High School on April 28th.  We  acknowledge and thank Judge Tyler, Rachel Ryckman,  and the members of the Sublette County bar, and Judges Radda and Day and members of the Teton County bar, who went into the schools and spent time with the students preparing them for the arguments prior to the court’s visit.  The students were very attentive and had some great questions for the court after the cases were heard.   We believe this type of participation from the bar helped make this one of the most successful and worthwhile trips the court has ever taken. The court would also like to thank Tina Olson, Appellate Counsel at the Public Defender’s Office, Terry Armitage, Deputy Attorney General, Leda Pojman, Senior Assistant Attorney General, and Stewart Young, Director of the Prosecution Assistance Clinic at the University of Wyoming College of Law and Special Assistant Attorney General, for agreeing to accompany the court and make their arguments in Pinedale and in Jackson.  The Justices also enjoyed a luncheon in their honor at the County Library in Pinedale, a reception hosted by the Wyoming State Bar and the Teton County Bar at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and a luncheon sponsored by Rotary and the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce in Jackson.
