The Nebraska Supreme Court traveled to South Sioux City for an Oral Argument Session on November 1st and all area high schools were invited with students from Hartington-Newcastle, Emerson-Hubbard, Wisner Pilger, Wynot, South Sioux City, Norfolk and Ponca attending. This was a unique and special opportunity to listen to the court hear arguments. The students asked great questions of our judges!
Two cases were heard:
*In re Interest of Jeremy U. (10 minutes per side) S-19-0215 - Douglas
*In re Guardianship of Witty (10 minutes per side) S-18-1141 - Douglas
The NSBF coordinated a pre-event for Native American students who were also attending the session. Attendees heard from Big Fire Law Firm and Policy Group, a 100% Native owned and majority women owned national law firm, and from Doris Huffman, executive director of the Nebraska State Bar Foundation, about the Standing Bear Scholarship.
