The Colorado Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at Golden High School on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012. The Court will hear arguments in 2 cases:
11SC529: People of the State of Colorado, in the interest of L.A.N. v. L.M.B. — this case is about the authority of a child’s guardian to authorize a release of the child’s therapist’s records regarding counseling sessions with the child as part of a hearing to terminate the child’s mother’s parental rights.
11SC382: Walter James Tate v. People of the State of Colorado — this case is about Mr. Tate’s constitutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure (the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution), when he was arrested for DUI after he was found by an officer sleeping in his car.
A question-and-answer session, during which the students may ask questions of the attorneys, will follow the arguments in each case. At the conclusion of the second argument, the students also will have the opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer session with the Supreme Court justices.
