What: Rally and Oral Argument viewing
When: Friday, July 29
Where: Regional Justice Center
200 Lewis Avenue, Las Vegas
Rally: Sidewalk in front of main entrance
Proceedings: Nevada Supreme Court Courtroom, 17th floor (limited public seats)
Overflow viewing: Jury Assembly Room, 3rd floor
Time: Full schedule 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Rally: 8:45 a.m. to 9:15 a.m.
Lopez Oral Arguments: 10:00 a.m.
Duncan Oral Arguments: 11:30 a.m.
On Friday, July 29th, the Nevada Supreme Court will hear arguments in both ESA cases. The first oral argument, Schwartz vs. Lopez, (this is the case with the injunction against the program) will begin at 10 a.m. for a 60-minute presentation in the Las Vegas courtroom. The second oral argument, Duncan vs. State, Office of the Treasurer, (the case that was previously dismissed by a lower court) will begin at 11:30 a.m. for a 60-minute presentation.
The overflow room accommodates up to 300 people and the courtroom seats approximately 70 individuals. However, it is expected 30 or so seats will already be reserved for news media, etc. Seating in the Jury Assembly Room is also limited, so it will be a first-come, first-seated situation.
Just a few things to be aware of if you plan on attending:
Cell phones are not allowed in the courtroom.
Participants will go through security to enter the Regional Justice Center. Expect to remove shoes, belts, and empty pockets — just like the airport!
And if you’re not in the Vegas area, the hearings will also be video conferenced to the Supreme Court courtroom in Carson City, for folks in the north!
