NM Court of Appeals holds oral argument at Grants High School

Continuing with its program of holding oral arguments in high schools throughout New Mexico, last week the Court of Appeals heard argument at Grants High School in a case (State v. Judith Dean) involving methamphetamine trafficking, according to this report in the Cibola Beacon.

The report notes that the Court ruled in favor of the defendant at the hearing. I assume the Court issued its ruling on the spot so that students in the audience would not have to wait several weeks, or months, to learn its decision.

The Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral argument on April 26 at another high school, the New Mexico Military Institute, in the case of State v. Samantha Garcia.
