State Supreme Court hears arguments at Boys State

Posted: Updated:

COOKEVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Supreme Court will hear cases in Cookeville this week at the American Legion's Boys State, which takes place at Tennessee Technological University.

The court's change of venue is part of a program that gives students a chance to study Supreme Court cases and then hear those cases argued in person. The court has heard dozens of cases before tens of thousands of students over the past 19 years.

The arguments on Thursday will mark the 13th time the court has participated in Boys State - where hundreds of high school juniors spend a week learning about government with activities that simulate local, county and state government roles.

The court will be at Girls State at Lipscomb University in Nashville May 30.
