Oral arguments will be followed by an informal question-and-answer session. A reception will then be held in the Thurgood Marshall Gallery. Both rooms are in Swen Parson Hall.

Cases to be heard include:

  • Auto-Owners Insurance Company v. Merle Yocum Trucking and Michigan Millers Mutual Insurance (Insurance Coverage Action)
  • People of the State of Illinois v. Timothy S. Butorac (Operating Watercraft while Intoxicated)

Once arguments begin, the back door to the courtroom will be closed. Attendees will be allowed to enter and exit the courtroom only during the break between cases. Guests are asked to observe proper courtroom decorum – no food, hats, etc.

This event is free and open to the public.
