Case Updates

This page will have any case updates or clarifications for Mock Trial 2019. Please check back weekly for updates.

Rule 19 and Rule 22 Distinction

Rule 19 specifically refers to communication between a timekeeper and the team members during the trial.  The timekeeper can only provide information on the remaining time or answer anything related to timekeeping.

Rule 22 specifically refers to communication after the trial concludes during the 3-minute Post-Trial Objection time period.  The timekeeper could provide input at this point to team members.  Please note that the timekeeper should ask the presiding judge if s/he may visit with the other participating team members.
