The Arkansas Supreme Court is conducting its oral argument this morning in Texarkana, Arkansas, at the Arkansas High School Student Union. The case to be argued is Brandon Lacy v. State (CR09-1340). Because this case is not being argued in the Supreme Court’s courtroom (where the video cameras for live streaming online videos are installed), there will be no video feed of today’s oral argument.
Today’s oral argument in Texarkana marks only the eleventh time in modern times that the Arkansas Supreme Court has held court away from Little Rock. Amendment 80 to the Arkansas Constitution, which was adopted in 2000, provides that the Supreme Court may meet at such times and places as designated by the Court. For more information on today’s event, which is open to the public, view the press release issued by the Administrative Office of the Courts.
