Join us at Columbus North High School for an Oral Argument

November 25, 2014 | Announcement

Typically, the Court holds about 80 oral arguments at the State House in Indianapolis each year. Occasionally, it schedules arguments outside the capital to allow the press and public in other areas of the state an opportunity to attend an argument.

The Indiana Supreme Court will travel to Bartholomew County to hear oral argument. Case information will be added as it becomes available. The 40-minute argument is open to the press and public. Seating is on a first-come, first served basis.

The argument will be held at Columbus North High School on Friday, April 10 at 1 pm. The school is located at 1400 25th Street, Columbus, IN  47201.
