Oral argument scheduled in Stewart v. Vivian

The Court has scheduled argument in our case Stewart v. Vivian for Thursday, April 6. I'm pleased to note that the argument will be conducted in Morgan County, Ohio, as part of the Court's off-site program, which has as a goal the education of high school students about the Court and legal system. While I'm disappointed we won't be going to the Court's home in Columbus, the off-site program gives students a chance to interact with the Justices and lawyers, which is great. I participated in a similar program in December, albeit with the Chamber of Commerce, rather than students.

Some prior discussion of the Stewart case can be found here. We will file, and I will share, our reply brief on Monday.
