Ten members of the Wyoming Seminary Mock Trial team attended one session of the recent Argument Court, held in the Mellow Theater at Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pa. Three judges of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania presided over the court, which from time to time will travel to hold special community sessions in various venues in the state. Argument Court allows attorneys to present appeals in criminal and civil cases previously heard in Common Pleas courts. About 8,000 appeals are filed annually in Superior Court.
Prior to the start of proceedings, the team members, accompanied by teacher coaches Adam Carlisle and Justin Naylor and team advisors Attorneys Neil and Cathy O’Donnell, met the Hon. Supreme Court Justice Seamus P. McCaffery.
The Hon. Superior Court President Judge Correale F. Stevens and the Hon. Judges Jack A. Panella and Sallie Updyke Mundy also visited briefly with the team before the session began.
