4th Circuit brings courtroom to College of Law Tuesday

Loyola press release - November 2, 2009

Law students at Loyola University New Orleans are invited to attend oral arguments before the State of Louisiana Court of Appeal Fourth Circuit on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 10 a.m., in the College of Law, Room 308.

Three cases will be heard by a three-judge panel that includes Judge Charles Jones, Judge James McKay III and Judge Edwin Lombard.

“These cases will serve as a great learning experience, especially for first-year law students who will be doing oral arguments next semester in their Moot Court class,” says Stephanie Jumonville, associate dean of students in the College of Law.

According to Jumonville, students will be able to come and go in the room. However, because these are real cases argued by real attorneys, professional courtesies dictate as little movement in the room as possible.

The cases being heard are:

  • Joseph “Smokey” Johnson and Wardell Quezergue v. Tuff-N-Rumble Management, Inc., Boutit, Inc., DBA No Limit Records, LLC, and Sony Music Entertainment, Inc.; 2009-CA-0739
  • Daisy Palmer, et al. v. Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, INC., et al.; 2009-CA-0751
  • Leander Winford v. Dept. of Police; 2009-CA-0770
