State Supreme Court Justices Working in Jonesboro Today

APRIL 7, 2005 - Posted at 7:23 a.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - History will be made in northeast Arkansas today, when the Arkansas Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Jonesboro this morning for the first time ever.  Justices will meet in the Arkansas State University Fowler Center this morning to hear the case of D.R. Buddy Wallis vs. Ford Motor Company.

Today marks only the third occasion in modern history that the Supreme Court has ever met outside of Little Rock.  The first time was almost three years ago in Fayetteville.  The second time occured last year in Fort Smith.  Amendment 80 to the Arkansas constitution, adopted in 2000, provides that the high court may meet at such times and places as designated by the Court.

Following oral arguments, the seven Justices will visit with students at various schools in the Jonesboro area.

K8 News will feature live coverage of the event today on K8 News Midday, now airing at 11 a.m.
