Mora High School to host Minnesota Supreme Court

Mora High School will play host to the state Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 8.

According to a news release, the justices will convene in the auditorium to hear oral arguments in the case of State of Minnesota vs. Almanzo Ousley Cotton.

The visit is part of the court's traveling oral arguments program.

Mora High School Principal Brent Nelson said only two schools are chosen by the Supreme Court for a visit each year.

“Mora High School is honored to have been selected as one of the two schools in the state to host the Minnesota Supreme Court this year,” Nelson said in the news release. “This is a great opportunity for our students to see firsthand how the judicial system works.”

Voce also said Mora being selected is a great opportunity for students to learn about the legal system.

"The Supreme Court tries to give back and teach students the importance of the judicial system, and how it operates," Voce said.

The hearings will also be livestreamed on the school district’s YouTube channel.

After the hearings, the justices will hold a question-and-answer session with students and spend time visiting classrooms.

The visit to Mora High School will mark the 54th traveling oral argument event for the state Supreme Court.
