Entry Description

Court of Appeals joins student exercise in self-government
Oral arguments will illustrate the judiciary at work and the rule of law

INDIANAPOLIS – The Court of Appeals of Indiana will conduct oral argument before delegates attending Hoosier Boys State and Hoosier Girls State at Trine University in Angola on June 18 and June 27, respectively.

The arguments will give delegates a glimpse of the judiciary’s indispensable role in our democracy as the delegates conduct mock campaigns and elections for the legislative and executive branches of government. The Court of Appeals has appeared multiple times at Boys State and Girls State and welcomes the delegates’ keen interest in democratic processes and institutions.

The panel of judges for Hoosier Boys State will be Judge John G. Baker, Judge James S. Kirsch and Judge Melissa S. May. The case is Wood v. State, arising out of a fatal boating accident in Monroe County in 2010. The argument will start at 1:30 p.m. and last about an hour.

The panel of judges for Hoosier Girls State will be Judge Paul D. Mathias, Judge Michael P. Barnes and Judge Terry A. Crone. The case is Hill v. State, a probation-revocation case from Marion County. The argument will start at 2:30 p.m. and last about one hour.

The June 18 argument will be in Fabiani Theater in University Center; the June 27 argument will be in the Athletic and Recreation Center.

Reporters, including student journalists, may ask the court’s permission to record or photograph the argument. Please fax the Court Administrator (317-233-4627) at least 48 hours before the argument. All cameras must be tripod mounted and cannot use flash or strobe lighting.

The Court of Appeals hears oral arguments across Indiana to allow citizens to see the court at work. The court has conducted more than 360 “Appeals on Wheels” since its 2000-2001 centennial. For more information about the court or Appeals on Wheels, please visit
