Mar 18, 2009
The Ohio Third District Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in two separate cases at Ohio Northern University's Pettit College of Law in the Moot Court Room at 10 a.m on Tuesday, March 24.

The oral arguments will be held before a three-judge panel consisting of Judges Stephen R. Shaw, Vernon L. Preston and John R. Willamowski. The court's fourth judge is Richard M. Rogers. Rogers, Shaw and Willamowski are all Ohio Northern law alumni.

The first case, McCoy v. Murray (Defiance County), is an appeal on the granting of a motion for summary judgment in a personal injury claim.

The second case to be heard is State v. Rexroad (Wyandot County), an appeal of Rexroad's conviction and sentence on two counts of misdemeanor vehicular homicide.

At the conclusion of both cases, the appellate judges will take questions from the audience.

The appellate court's special session at the College of Law is part of an educational outreach program to give students, educators and the public the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the appellate process. The appellate court, based in Lima, Ohio, is comprised of 17 counties and travels among them for special court sessions.

The event is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited. ONU Cable channel 3 will broadcast the session live.
