Justices go to school


As part of its “Court Community Connections” program, the Michigan Supreme Court heard oral argument in Macomb County in People of the State of Michigan v Shawquanda Borom on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at Macomb Community College Macomb Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium in Clinton Twp. 

Prior to oral argument, Chief Justice Robert P. Young Jr. and Justice David F. Viviano, a resident of Macomb County, met with government classes at Chippewa Valley High School.

This is the 15th time the court has heard oral argument outside Lansing.  To date, more than 4,000 high school students have had front-row seats to study and observe Michigan’s highest court.  The program enhances students’ awareness and understanding of Michigan’s judicial system and the importance of the rule of law. 

Participating schools included Academy for International Studies, Anchor Bay, Armada, Arts Academy in the Woods, Center Line, Chippewa Valley, Cousino, Dakota, DeLaSalle, East Detroit, Fitzgerald, Fraser, International Academy of Macomb, Lake Shore, L’Anse Creuse, L’Anse Creuse North, Lincoln, Lutheran North, Merritt Academy, Mt. Clemens, Richmond, Romeo, Roseville, South Lake, Stevenson, Warren Mott, and Warren Woods Tower.
