Mr Greg Scott, the Lassen County Juvenile Program Co-ordinator for the Superior Court recently sent letters to various school officials in the county advising them that oral arguments before the Supreme Court of the State of California will held in Redding on October 4th and 5th. 2005.  Students throughout the county who are interested in law will be invited to observe the arguments.

The original invitation is from the Superior Court of Shasta county where the arguments are to be held.  Letters were sent to county school superintendents in neighboring counties advising them that the event will take place.  Lassen County has 144 spaces reserved which should be adequate to seat students and adult chaperons.

This is a marvelous opportunity to introduce high school students to the operations of our supreme court, but unless action is taken by our school authorities, it will not happen.  Parents who are interested in this event should contact their school district and advise them of their interest.

The appropriate person to call in the Big Valley District is the Big Valley Unified School District Principal/Superentendant at 530 294-5366
